Monday Musings

“…change is possible…and people can do it, also…people can change themselves…I sometimes feel very sad because the people who have had the power to do so have been incredibly destructive to all of us and to the planet. But I’ve never lost faith in the people who didn’t have that kind of power, who didn’t do that kind of destruction. …the reason I’m here in this, on this hill, and the reason I worked very hard to get out of the city, is because I get energy from the earth itself. I feel that as long as the earth can make a spring every year, I can. As long as the earth can flower and produce nurturing fruit, I can, because I’m the earth. I won’t give up until the earth gives up. Of course, that’s why where we are now is so sad, because you just start feeling the earth has pretty much had it with this species. And with good reason. We have to exert all of our love and all of our energy to try to convince the earth that we haven’t forgotten that she is, it is, home.”
