Earth Bound is a daybook of 365 meditations culled from the worlds of spirituality and science, philosophy and art. These daily musings remind us of both the responsibility and the humanity we share on Earth and within the embrace of the cosmos.

The book provides readers with a unique, eclectic view of Earth's calendar:
February 12: Today is one of several festival days throughout the year that are devoted to Diana, the Roman goddess of the forests and the hunt. Ancient myths told of pilgrims who, wandering in the woods, came across the naked goddess. In retribution over her embarrassment, she changed them into forest creatures.

February 17: On this day in 1917 a street in Baltimore was the first anywhere to be lit with gas. This was the beginning of a curse for astronomers, who would come to revile city lights for interfering with their telescopes.October 9: Camille Saint-Saens, the French composer, was born on this day in 1835. A lover of the natural world, he created the collection of short pieces entitled "Carnival of the Animals." Among its themes are The Lion, The Swan, The Aquarium, The Donkeys, The Tortoise, and even Fossils.


Brian Nelson writes for television and film and teaches at the University of Southern California. He has written for numerous television shows including 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (an ABC mini-series), Lois and Clark (ABC) and In a Heartbeat (Disney Channel), which earned him the Prism Award for writing. A member of Emerson Unitarian Universalist Church in Canoga Park, California, Nelson plans solstice services. He lives in Woodland Hills, California.
