“Gaia - The Earth Goddess”
John Gowdy, USA/Italy

Named after the Greek Earth Goddess, Gaia. The Gaia theory was developed in the 1960s by scientist Dr James Lovelock. The theory states that the processes that keep the Earth’s environment in check are “self healing” and could be considered a living organism. The Earth's natural cycles work together to keep the Earth healthy supporting life on Earth. Gaia will eventually heal our only home, but will it be too late for the human race?

3RD PLACE - SOLO

"Change of Seasons"
Karen Fralich, Canada

As winter fades, amid the emerging spring, Flowers begin to bloom, and birds to sing / Through the trees and soft breezes, a change / To sizzling temperatures, summer’s range! / Thunderstorms, bees and endless sun / Cool winds bring autumn, summer’s done / Birds fly south, the color changing leaves / Soon frost arrives, snow blankets the eaves / Always in motion, whatever the reason / A constant flow, the Change of Seasons.

Since first breath you become the main character of your book of life. Life choices may make your book very interesting or possibly boring, it may have a nice cover; maybe not, it may contain many pages or very few, etc. But the most important thing of all in the book of life is the Writer. It is Mother, the Writer with capital letters. Love, respect and take care of her!
