Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day 2012!

Mari Boine - Gula gula (Hear the voices of the foremothers).
Sung in Sami.
Pictures from around the world.
Enjoy :)

Lyrics translation:

Gula gula (Hear the voices of the foremothers)

Hear the voices of the foremothers
They ask you why you let the earth become polluted
They remind you where you come from
Do you hear?
Again they want to remind you
That the earth is our mother
If we take her life
We die with her

Mari Boine - en av mine favoritter!
Skulle bare innom for å stille deg et spørsmål: Hvordan ser goji-bæra dine ut nå?
Mine er helt tørka inn med visne blader, ingen tegn til liv. Plantene har overvintra i drivhuset uten varme.
Begynte å vanne forrige uke. Da var det tørt i sengene.
Tror du de kommer seg?

Ha ei flott uke ;:OD)

Everyday should be a Happy Earth day, don't you think?
