April 18 2010 was Earth Sunday, and Summerlea's guest of
honour was Chief Topleaf, Iroquois, who shared with us some
of the wisdom of the Mohawk people with respect to Mother
Earth and to each other.|
Also featured was a beautiful presentation of the song "The Lone Wild Bird" by Summerlea's songtress / guitarist Leslie Field, accompanied by husband Keith on Alto and recorder.
Following are some photos of the event. You can pick it to see a larger version, then pick Back on your browser to return to this page. Unfortunately, our photos of Leslie and Keith are too blurred to post.
"Many and Great, O God, are thy Works"
for one's family, the otter to remind us that fun is
necessary, the marmot that stands up to predators
by its squeal. He mentioned geese that must be allowed to
rejuvenate their families each year, and ducks that are
never killed for food.
Connie and the choir for reminding us of our responsibilities
to each other and to Mother Earth.
