A Tale of Magic.
Once upon a time Earth was nourished by elves, pixies and dwarfs.
They worked in teams to maintain nature and environment in good health for mankind.
Every Autumn the dwarfs took their axes and worked hard to prune and clip all the plants, bushes and trees.
In the meantime, the elves collected the last berries and started to paint leaves and plants with beautiful yellow, red and brown colors.
The pixies had to cut short the parched grasses and bring it to the farmers for feeding the animals.
Other groups of elves would fly throught the air to collect dirty air and black smoke particles in great white veils to clean the air.
Just before Winter arrived, all the fallen leaves had to be collected and used for fertilizing the Earth and keep her warm during the cold months.
Every Winter, the dwarfs kept on with pruning and clipping. The elves brought snow to the Earth to let her sleep under this white soft blanket to rest from the past months of growing, flowering and blossoming.
At the end of the Winter the workers started with planting seeds for flowers, grain and much more. The snow had to be wiped away with brooms.
Pixies ran around and flied to the trees to touch branches for starting new life of buds of all kinds.
And then Spring came.
All the buds had to be sparged with fresh, clean water. Water that was filtered first to extract all the dirt and inorganic particles, like tins, plastic, glass, metal, chemicals and more.
All the new flowers and blossoms had to be painted in different kind of colors.
And than Summer came! An outburst of beautiful colors, flowers, lots of sunshine and lots of garbage. Mankind enjoyed the sunshine in the parcs, on the beaches and everywhere outdoor.
The fairy tale workers loved to see the people enjoy the sunshine, the flowers, leaves and all the living things. But, oh, they had to work so hard to keep Earth clean. To collect tins, plastic, glass
and other garbage. They had to give water to the plants and trees and clean the air from smog and black smoke particals. They had to mow and prune the already blown flowers and collect the fruits.
But they never complained and loved to see mankind enjoy all the good things of Earth.
Is this a Fairy Tale? Yes, it is, of course it is.
Or not ...?
Shouldn't it be possible for us to act like the fairy tale workers.
Like them, we can work hard to keep Earth clean and healthy, to nourish all what lives and to take care of our environment.
Wouldn't that be great? Wouldn't that be magic?
Let it be Earth Day, Every Day!

The mandala in the background is mine and contains the words:
"Earth Day, Every Day". These words are woven a couple of times inside the mandala.
