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!

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Share it with the world.

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!

In all the busy business of the web, the one daily meditation I ALWAYS open and love to view and read is John Caddy's "Morning Earth." The photos are striking, the daily poem wise and clear, the facts appended about the natural scene always solid and illuminating. Of ALL the messages I receive daily, "Morning Earth" is the one I often forward to family and friends, who find it as stunning as I do, like a blessing. James P. Lenfestey

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

my daily webmail. I LOBE to receive and open it, and send it on.

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

The photography's clarity and often unique close angles offering new eyes on natural scenes. And john's brief poetic meditations. And the appended science facts.

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

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

even further distribute John's inspiring message.
