I love Morning Earth! I find it so inspirational. John has an incredible gift for making the images that we perhaps pass everyday come alive in an AWE-inspiring way. The natural world is so remarkable but John makes me stop and appreciate that over and over. I love to share the images and poems with my two sons and I see them noticing nature's beauty more as a result. My 11-year old has been inspired to write poetry too. John's photography is fabulous, too. What a gift he brings to my inbox daily.

The Great!

I enjoy John's images and words daily. I have taken a nature class from him and have the morning Earth book. Even though I am a health care provider, I have used his images and words occasionally to help nurture their spirit.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how much information has been given over the years to teachers, students, poets free of charge. Ideas on symbiosis, nature's course, facts on interaction between living beings. By understanding these, it has helped spar respect for the earth.

Ways to make it better...

the daily photo and poem inclded a link to a topic on the website. the site is so dense and contains info that could be linked to the natural photo.

My husband met John Caddy at an art fair years ago. John asked if he could send his daily photos and poems to us. At first I didn't pay much attention. Then at some point I decided to emulate John, that I would do a sketch of some natural inspiration on a daily basis. This lasted about six weeks. I am amazed by his consistency. Year after year we have received his inspirational work... Almost every day. I am a glass artist specializing in images of the natural world and his work is very useful to me. Some of my own efforts are used in hospital settings where I hope patients and staff will be uplifted. Morning Earth has become a part of my own work.

find new ways to broaden its ability to transmit its influence to more people on a worldwide basis. Enhancing our appreciation of the natural world gives us something we can share instead of something that drives us apart.

I 'd taken the time to read the poems as well as looking at the photos, which I must admit is what I do most often.

Morning Earth is for me, a daily blessing. The images, so stunning; the poetry so beautifully concise. Mr. Caddy seemingly knows my thoughts - would that I could express myself so eloquently.

As a teacher (now retired) and writer, I've been enlightened and inspired by the Morning Earth site and John Caddy's daily messages for several years now. I've recommended it to many people and put a link to it on my website. I don't know of any organization that does a better job of linking artistic expression with an ecological sensibility. We humans won't be motivated to change our planet-wasting ways until we learn to love and appreciate the natural world we inhabit, and John's work is all about fostering that learning.

The daily (weekday) email messages with a photo and poetic comment on it -- and sharing these with my wife (and other people).

I was raised on Kootenay Lake in British Columbia. The Mountains drop down into the lake, often mirroring themselves to the tune of the cal of grebe and loon. As a young naturalist, my mission was to reveal the beauty of nature to the casual on looker. So, many years later, when I “met” John Caddy, I found a “kindred spirit.” He spoke the same language of nature like no other. His insightful, or in-sight-full words bring the beauty and wonder of nature full circle so people see deeper into the depths of this magnificence. Now I live in the city. I am doing caregiving for 24 hours, 5 days a week. John takes me out into nature with every email, bringing me needed respite. His web site offers even more. My 3 & 1/2 year old grandson is learning the names of the birds from his emails. (They stay still enough on the screen to see them, and return to them for a second look!) If I was back in the classroom teaching, I would be using his web even more. He offers a rich variety of ways to interact with nature. John Caddy is one of a kind. His unique way of seeing shape and pattern, micro & maximum sizes, fascinates me as much as his sense of humor. World wide he shares his love of nature so all can see through his eyes, and hear his words through his mind: thank you, John! My gratitude is beyond description!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Every time I read an new Morning earth email, or every time I connect with John Caddy. It returns my heart to the Heart of the Earth.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The frequent emails I receive, returning me to nature.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Just John!!!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help more people return their hearts to nature where every heart belongs! Teach more children about the beauty and wonder of nature.

Ways to make it better...

I received one email a day!!! (Now, that is greedy)

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

That is out of my realm!

One thing I'd also say is that...

John is the perfect teacher to teach children and the rest of us to really experience nature through our own words, our own inner experience. Like a mirror, he shines his wisdom on us so that we too can shine!

I've been an artist for as long as I can remember but it wasn't until I met John Caddy and Morning Earth that I found a home with other Artist Naturalists. I feel a profound connection to his mission and will be forever grateful for his insights, knowledge, creativity, vision and generosity. I find the site to be informative (my daughter has referred to it many times for school assignments), welcoming (there are opportunities for anyone to contribute), and spiritually uplifting ("an antidote for environmental despair"). An invaluable resource. Thank you, John.

Really enjoy the depth of the photos and commentary that John provides on a daily basis....very insightful....gets me to a whole new level of appreciation and gratitude for the wonderful gift of nature. In this crazy paced life, it's a moment to pause, sit, take a breath & relax caught up in the magic of John's photography and reflections.
