Take a walk, smell the blossoming trees and flowers, listen to the birds or perhaps the rushing water of a river, feel the earth beneath your feet. Be grateful that we have the privilege to experience such beauty.
Think about positive ways to make a difference, such as join or support environmental organizations like Oceana who work tirelessly to save the oceans and feed the world.
Refrain from single use plastic.
Vote with your fork. Support a local farmer who can bring you nutritious organic food while also nourishing our depleted topsoil.

On Tuesday April 8th Oceana had its annual event honoring Michael Bloomberg and Bloomberg Philanthropies’ commitment to saving the oceans and feeding the world.
My husband David and I co-hosted the event with Ted Danson and Mary Steenbergen along with Oceana’s Board of Directors in the dazzling Four Seasons Restaurant.
Oceana raised over $900,000 and had the privilege of hearing a song that Mary wrote for her husband Ted. The room swooned with their love for each other as well as the inhabitants of the earth and ocean. The evening ended with a hymn composed and played by pianist Kim Oler and accompanied by Daria Credle.
“More than ever the oceans are a source of income and food for people around the world. So when ocean life is threatened, human life is threatened, and we can’t let that happen,” Danson told the audience.
I couldn’t agree more.
