A place to record my adventures of being a gentle consumer and living more fully, with less stuff.

We can live well in its light
One last excerpt from Crow Planet before I bring it back to the library today.
"But here we are, intricate human animals capable of feeling despair over the state of the earth and, simultaneously, joy in its unfolding wildness, no matter how hampered. What are we to do with such a confounding vision? The choices appear to be few. We can deny it, ignore it, go insane with its weight, structure it into a stony ethos with which we beat our friends and ourselves to death- or we can live well in its light."
