Moving on to April, we are pleased this month to include a celebration of Earth Day 2019. Since its official inception in 1970, the Earth Day environmental movement has become a rite of spring; an effective tool for spreading awareness of the critical nature of sustainability in the survival of life on this planet.

"Power Switch: Taking a Home Off the Grid" (page 32), by writer Jim Matavalli, looks at sources of alternative energy, costs, technologies and other special considerations. That includes various options, such as making a partial transition to green power, without leaving the grid entirely.

What we eat, how and with whom also contributes to the idea that we’re all in this together. Wise Words to that effect are found in "Ocean Robbins on Personal and Planetary Health" (page 34), by freelance writer April Thompson.

To kick start innovation, this month’s issue includes enlightening and innovative suggestions for connecting with like-minded people here at home and across the planet. Consider a plunge into extraordinary outdoor adventure; establish a sacred space; explore creative art therapies; plant an eco-friendly landscape; use your imagination.

Celebrate and promote progress in species sustainability efforts by supporting any of the many local Earth Day 2019 events this month in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco counties. (See our wide-ranging calendar of local Earth Day events on page 22.)

As always, open your heart and mind and read on. Debbey
