Blue Earth

It's Earth Day 2013. Here's the beautiful blue earth hanging in space. Greg Something, the astronaut hanging in space in Middletown, the play by Will Eno, gets to see this, and fall in love with it all over again, in case he had forgotten his childhood joy in it. Environmental writer and activist Sandra Steingraber is writing from jail, as did Martin Luther King, Jr., from Birmingham Jail, to remind us of our shared civil rights, in her letter about our shared human rights, as well as our responsibilities to this beautiful blue planet. Hang in there, Earth. Hang in there, us.
