Tuesday and Thursday
Your Earth Day cartoon.

More than likely you are familiar with the old song by Donovan - "The Mountain Song", in fact - that puts to music an old Zen saying about the impermanence of states of being. And if you're really hip, you have grooved to the 20 million year long instrumental adaptation by the Allman Brothers off their classic "Eat a Peach."

I am not the first to connect this Buddhist concept to environmental damage caused by mountain removal. Although I just discovered this post after doing this cartoon, Kristine at Outdoor Bloggers does a nice job of tying together the environmental, cultural and metaphorical aspects.

So, hey, happy earth day. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Oh, and: Sorry for no update on Tuesday. Life happened at me.
