Heal the Earth, Break Your Heart
Politics won't save us; having our hearts broken will. Touch the natural world before you take another step today. Sit down in a place that echoes the wild. Don't jump up when a spider comes crawling across you leg -- watch it keep going in its own time, which is really your time. Don't turn in apprehension when you hear a rustling in the grass or a tree -- have faith in this place you are becoming. Remember that for a time we are privileged to be congealed, walking parts of what's around us -- the soil, the sun, the air, the water. When we stop being who we are, we stop being fully alive.
