I start every day with Morning Earth and The Writers' Almanac. Together they put me in a positive mindset to address the inevitable challenges ahead. John Caddy's remarkable photographs of nature, accompanied by his gift for the poetic line, open my eyes and mind to the beauty that is often just out my back door, if I would just pay a bit more attention.

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.

being inspired by art and words and nature on a daily basis.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

Opening Morning Earth each day has become an essential part of my life. John Caddy sees meaning in every image he photographs, and he voices those meanings in clear, revealing poetry. The intimacy to the natural world in Caddy's photos brings me surprising connections to my earthy relatives. I wish teachers everywhere could bring Morning Earth to their students for joy and enlightenment.

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

The amazing intimacy to nature in the photo images and Caddy's poetic insights about what is happening in nature.

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

Caddy himself is the only person from Morning Earth that I have met.

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

Make itself known worldwide.
