Throw Back Thursday: “Rocky Mountain High” Inspired by the Perseid Meteor Shower

In honor of this week’s Perseid metor shower, #‎TBT‬ ‪#‎throwbackthursday‬ to the summer of 1972: “‘Rocky Mountain High’ was written during the first summer we lived in the Rocky Mountains. I was starting to go camping and fishing, and doing other things that I’d wanted to do all my life, and in the place where I most wanted to be. Everything was new and full of possibility, and I was so happy. I found some new friends and lost an old friend… One night on a camping trip to watch the Perseid meteor shower, when it was literally “raining fire in the sky,” I started writing this very personal song of my rebirth.”

~ John Denver, on writing “Rocky Mountain High”

Celebrate Earth Day Every Day

Celebrate morning,
The cry of a loon on a lake in the night
Dreams that are born in the dawn’s early light
Celebrate morning.

Celebrate living,
The laughter that sings in the heart of a child,
Freedom that flies to the call of the wild,
Celebrate living.

Celebrate evening,
The stars that appear in the loss of the sun,
Whispering winds, ‘We are one, we are one’…

Celebrate Earth Day, every day,
Celebrate Earth Day, every day
Celebrate land and sea
Celebrate you and me
Celebrate Earth Day, every day
