"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."-Native American proverb
There's no place like home. And before, we move to Mars, it might be nice to tell our sweet planet how lovely she really is. Today, the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, all over the web, you'll read about the need to stop using plastic water bottles, how to reduce your carbon footprint, the terrible things happening to dolphins, and to ride your bike to work. Important reminders indeed. But as corny as it is, (and a big lesson from elementary school), we should take these to heart everyday, because everyday should be Earth Day, right? So today, maybe we should all just tell Mother Earth how hot she still is (despite all the damage we've done, consider them a few wrinkles). Doesn't every gal/hot mom like to be reminded that's she's still pretty? After 4.54 billion years, Earth's still got it goin' on.
Check her out with these breathtaking images from National Geographic. Also, see the planet's beauty and geeky side with the art meets math images above from Found Functions. Photographer and mathematician Nikki Graziano works both sides of her brain with her fascinating images of nature that highlight math is everywhere on the planet, whether we see it or not (If you're a fan of the golden ratio, you'll definitely find her work amazing). Her interesting images of home sweet home are available for purchase on Etsy.
Happy Earth Day!
