The New Earth

New Earth Talks
There is a fabulous PBS series called  Earth- A New Wild. Dr. Sanjayan, a conservation scientist, explores 29 countries and describes how we are already healing our planet.

The earth is sustainable and "resourceable" if we give it a chance.

The next small step might be to take a nap. It might be to eat chocolate instead of broccoli.

It is challenging to feel things that we have not been given permission to talk about.  We have all experienced  so many miracles. We understand them by saying that it was simply luck or hard work. Perhaps it is so much more than that.........
