Saving the Earth(Worms)

This morning I woke up early to go for a run before work. It was difficult to get out of bed, but with the online magazine launch scheduled for Friday I needed an energy boost. While I was doing a few warm up laps around the driveway, I noticed that there were dozens of earthworms attempting to crawl across the gravel drive.

The worms were coated in the gravel dust and many were struggling to move. I continued on my run, hoping to get in 30 minutes before I had to get ready for work. On my way back to the house, I noticed the worms again. It was clear that many would perish – either death by dehydration or by car tires. I decided that being a few minutes late was worth saving a few of the worms by relocating them to a local field of grass. Little gestures are important.
