kissing the earth

 

A way to celebrate Earth Day today and embrace failure…

  • On a famous occasion during the civil war, Caesar tripped when disembarking from a ship on the shores of Africa and fell flat on his face. With his talent for improvisation he spread his arms and embraced the earth as a symbol of conquest. By quick thinking he turned a terrible omen of failure into one of victory!” – Cicero, The Life and Times of Rome’s Greatest Politician, Anthony Everett
