In Honor of Planet Earth

Concord/Kannapolis, NC –Independent Tribune Newspaper

Since April 2010, you may have seen my face in a little color block under “In H.O.P.E.”, In Honor of Planet Earth column, where I write about my passions, environmental “going green” topics, social issues, travel and local community events and people.

  1. Read your good article on Earthing (grounding). Thank you for helping to spread the word of this magnificent “discovery.” Mother Earth is endowed with great healing power. All we have to do is wake up and reconnect with her. You can find more information on our website at, and if you would like a copy of our Earthing book, would be happy to send you a copy as well as an Earthing mat to experience indoor grounding. Cheers, Martin Zucker, co-author of the Earthing book…

  2. Thank you Martin Zucker! I just posted that I would love to try a mat! And always up for a good book, I will check out your website for sure. Happy Earthing to you.
