From the current issue of Pantheist Vision, we read about this famous landscape photographer, born this day in 1902 in San Francisco. He "believed in the sanctity of Nature. He raised photography to the status of fine art and used his photographs in efforts to preserve wilderness and protect the planet. Adams wrote, "I knew my destiny when I first experienced Yosemite" -- at the age of 14, on a vacation with his family. "
From Pantheist Vision, we read:
Join the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Convention on Wetlands, called the Ramsar Convention. This year's theme is "wetlands and water" -- healthy wetlands have a rich natural diversity of life that maintains and improves water quality.

It's a new month as we welcome February and the cool things it brings to the night sky...the Pleiades (the Seven Sisters), planets, the Snow Moon, and more. There's so much beauty to see when we remember to look up, even with the naked eye -- you don't have to have a telescope to appreciate the awesomeness of Nature's nights above us. Just click on the picture below for more details.
Celebrate the birthday of author/essayist/environmentalist Edward Abbey (January 29, 1927 -- March 14, 1989). His "works, set primarily in the southwestern United States, reflect an uncompromising environmentalist philosophy" (from Britannica.com).

Wishing everyone a Happy Solstice (summer for those in the southern hemisphere)! As we celebrate light and hope this new season (something we can all use especially this year!), we also have Saturn and Jupiter shining together as a 'Christmas Star.' Read all about the "great conjunction" here. It's a great time to be a pantheist and a sky watcher! Stay warm and safe as you celebrate this week.
