I wept today. Really really wept. It was the Eighth Continent of trash (twice the size of Texas!), the Haitians eating dirt, the killer whales full of fire retardant, the dust clouds carrying SARS from the African deserts to my back yard, everything…on and on…it’s just all too much to fathom, all the pain and suffering people have caused.
I need to take a break and get outside, remind myself that the earth is still here, still beautiful, and worth any amount of work it takes to make any small improvement.
