A friend of mine shared this with me a couple years ago and I f\have been a fan ever since. I often recommend to firends. I look forward to my daily dose of Grace that John sneds via email.
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.
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.
A remarkable artistic connector between the average citizen and the natural world. Words and images strongly reinforce the role that nature plays in our lives. These daily messages are stirring and inspiring.
veryinspiring. It is a daily reminder of life's miracles.I wish it was required reading at all schools and even for politicians Bob Schibel
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.
Morning Earth is: interesting, thought-provoking, and profound. It wakes up my curiosity every morning. I love how John Caddy SEES things and connects us to his natural world. He always inspires me to see mine.
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.
Beautiful to wake up to; it connects me to nature and I learn something everyday from the delightful poems. I frequently forward it to friends.
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. Sincerely, Don Wendel English Faculty North Hennepin Community College
