I still see a lot of life in you*

So, it didn’t work out in Copenhagen, I guess that means this is the end.

It’s too bad…

I heard someone say the other day that the reason people don’t try to prevent a climate catastrophe is because we don’t have a clear picture of what ‘the end’ would look like…

No, not really.

There is no way of knowing what the end will be like, it will just be the end.

The truth is, we can’t know what the end will look like…

Perhaps we can use this time to rethink what’s important to us.

    May we not give away our child's future for the sake of our immediate desires. Your beautiful images inspire me, surely we will wake up and preserve what we have.

  2. Eric says:

    "Turn, Turn, Turn" (by the Byrds :) was the number 1 song in the U.S. on the day that I was born: a time to be born, a time to die; but what of the time WE tell our progeny that WE have no answers for the crises WE ourselves have created?!!?

    we don't have to be here, but like Goldilocks, we have it "just right". maybe not for long.
    a time for peace~I swear~its not too late. is it?

    Thank you, as per always.
    Blessings…

    Count me in.

    P.S. My 3rd graders and I were also captivated by the above version of Rapunzel.
