I apologize for not keeping in touch better/more often.
I find blogging here difficult.
It never seems to work the same way twice. . .(either that or I don't work the same way twice. Which is entirely possible.)
I've been making crochet and learning.
That's what I call "watching documentarys".
I thought I'd share three of them with you.
This 2012 documentary was made by the Pachamama Alliance, part of whose mission is to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just human presence on this planet. A mission I resonate with. This forum where I watched is
world wide. There are some "prickly" types who respond/review. Of those who have reviewed this, it still has a 8.78 rating. I appreciate especially the upbeat and positive message at the end that ensures every ONE can make a difference.
I found this documentary extremely troubling. Frightened as much by the time that has elapsed since it won so many awards in 2010, as by the information it included. Again, made by ONE, for the most part and his quest to understand. It's hard to remember the
ocean when you live in the MidWest. Perhaps it's as hard to remember it's so very vital functions, even if you live beside it.
This documentary was made in 2007. It almost seems, cosmically speaking, that once this information became "known", or said out loud (AbraCaDaBra. . . I speak what I create), we were delivered a striking economic blow. Perhaps a moment to re-evaluate what is
Tomorrow is 2014. Seven years since the story of stuff. How much more "stuff" have we consumed?
If you have food in your refrigerator (let alone a refrigerator), clothes in your closet, a bed to sleep in and a roof over your head, you have MORE than 83 percent of the other humans on this planet. This feels wrong to me. Every mothers child of us deserves
shelter and a bowl of soup and a soft place to sleep with a warm blanket and a full belly. It only takes ONE of us to reach out to ONE of us.
I'm encouraged by those ONES who are joining to make these things possible.
And to those ONES who are learning and speaking what they learn/know.
And to those very bright ONES, seeking working solutions for the problems we face.
How WILL we replace our dependance on fossil fuel?
WILL we take care of the LIFE of this planet?
