Mother Earth is my church, my cathedral, and my kingdom of heaven. I pray for the day that we remember how to find our places of worship within the beauty of her body again, taking only what we need, leaving no wounds or scars, and giving back more than she has given. The ocean is my cathedral, the mountain is my cathedral, the meadow is my cathedral, the forest is my cathedral. Fire can ravage these places and new life will birth itself from the ashes. This is what makes a place truly sacred.
