The pictures and poetry of John Caddy help me see more deeply into the natural world around us, greatly increasing my appreciation of its diversity and beauty. This is a consistently excellent source for daily meditation.

I work in a public library in a small town in NE Iowa. I have, through my own enjoyment of the daily Morning Earth posts, inspired at least 6 others to subscribe. But even more fun than that is sharing the posts and photos with library patrons. I regularly print them off and mount them on colorful background paper and display them in different parts of the library, so people will enjoy them as they are looking for a book or browsing. They are part of my larger mission to bring the outside in, to give equal attention to both the left brain mind and the right side, sensual intelligence we all have but don't consciously nurture. I enjoy seeing people pause to read the captions and enjoy the photos.

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

I love seeing the new images and captions each day. They ground me in the natural world, reinforce connections even when we can't physically be there. I also really appreciate resources and commentary on the website.

Not continuing to send the Healing Images for free to anyone who asks for them, and yet, that's how they get more folks interested. They need some financial support to do that.

Morning Earth is a reminder that we all are connected and dependent on on the Mother. It reflects who we are and we see our images in the land and sea. The images are as we should be and serve as a reminder that, as guardians, the fate of the Mother is in our hands.

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

fund the effort to keep the Earth safe from the misguided efforts of the humans that wish to control it.

Morning Earth communications are like a mini meditation time for me. The photos that are shared along with the poems are fabulous. I view the photo and think of what I might write about it. Then I read the poem from Mr. Caddy and find that I nearly always have to look the photo over again because the poet usually notices things that I have not. I love Morning Earth!

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

develop a tremendous multi-media curriculum and give it to teachers who would use it to support their district's science, language arts, and fine arts standards.

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.

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

the encouragement to start each day with appreciation for and curiosity about the wonders of nature that surround us all the time.

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

I usually don't read the poetry (sorry). I find my own relationship to the image much more important.

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.
