Sorcerer's apprentice?



We have been massively intervening in the environment... Like the sorcerer's apprenctice, we are acting upon dangerously incomplete knowledge. We are, in effect, conducting a huge experiment on ourselves.

Girl, that's a mouthful and an eyeful. If I could bottle my rage I'm sure it would stop up this effing hole.

Thanks, Inanna - I feel the same way. Jersey Girl outrage is nothing to play with and is a sight to behold. xoxo

i feel so undone by this. our earth has a huge gaping wound.

and the bleeding cannot be stopped.

all the futile attempts falling so short. costing more time, death and destruction.

sadly this greed made visible will be an epic destruction that will continue in such insidious ways.
more a nightmare than we can begin to imagine.

it does give strength to the conviction of taking personal responsibility for the choices we make in our daily lives.

demanding accountability on a global level. beginning at home, community, state, country, continent, world.

i think i will walk outside and carefully, frugally water the garden.

today there is a soft breeze, welcome clouds, a new beginning.

sending you love and hope.
