Wednesday of Hope – A Glimmer on the Horizon

Sometimes we have to do the work, even though we don’t yet see a glimmer on the horizon that it’s actually going to be possible.

– Angela Davis

Los Angeles has drained so much water from Owens Valley. I spent 40 years in L.A., so I am aware how we used it. Those tufa spires you see in the image above from Mono Lake, were it not for the water that L.A. has used, they would be under water.

We can be discouraged by the signs we see around us as to the damage we are doing to this sacred place on which we live. But we will not give up hope. We look for a glimmer on the horizon, and continue to raise our voices, and do what we must do today.

See the World

Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.

– Ray Bradbury

The Poetry of Life

– Gustave Flaubert

Be joyful, though you have considered all the facts.

Perceiving Life with Reverence

If we perceived Life with reverence, we would stand in awe at the experience of physical Life and walk the Earth in a very deep sense of gratitude.

Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.
