I count on Morning Earth to start my day. I gaze at the photograph. If it's one that calls to me, I put it up as my desktop screen. Then, it's interesting to see when I decide to change it for another - something really good and/or the need to reflect seasonal change.

The poet, John Caddy, sends a daily email with an artistic photograph of a nature scene about which he has written a poem. The images are strong--both the written and the visual. Caddy has an eye for beauty and an ear for beautiful expression. I look forward to the daily reminder to pay attention to and be inspired by the world around us. I have used Morning Earth in my college classes and I often forward them to friends and family. We need more poetry in the world and Caddy's poetry is both accessible and profound so it appeals to a wide reaching audience.

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

the daily reminder to pay attention to detail and stay connected to nature.

John Caddy's photographs and accompanying poetry add an indescribable richness to my visual life. He finds unique and common images, both and opens my eyes to really seeing what is around me. I have had John add friends to his list out of my wish to allow others to enjoy morning earth. One other thing: because his work is mostly done in northern areas, he encourages us to see a special beauty in ice and snow -- neither of which, alone, we see as beautiful during a hard winter.

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

daily emails which include Caddy's photos and poetry.

I think Morning Earth is a terrific website for my Nature in Literature Course at North Hennepin Community College in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. I use the photographs and poems that John creates to go with them to help my students look closer into the aesthetics of nature.
