I make a habit of finding the things that reinforce my opinion that this is the greatest world we’ll ever see. There is plenty of room for improvement. No doubt about that. Every day, we make even more room for improvement. We could definitely stand to improve
- how we relate to one another
- How we treat each other
- How we treat our environment
- How we treat ourselves.
Nature doesn’t really need us. Within weeks of everybody staying home because of the Covid virus, dust and chemicals dissipated from the skies and people who have lived near mountains for decades got to see the mountain tops for the first time in their lives. Animals became more visible in places people hadn’t seen them before. Even the oceans and lakes looked clearer. Not all of them, but some of them.
If there is anything to learn from this pandemic it’s got to be that we humans have been way too arrogant in our stewardship of this planet. We have driven it down, just as we have driven ourselves down.
So now we have the chance to build it back up. Not how it ever was before, but better. We’ve gotta start by building ourselves back up. Not how we’ve been up to now, but better.
I have stayed away from popular social media places for awhile now. There is just so much noise I can take. Instead I am making this website. It’s about putting the world back together.
Well, I don’t know for sure. I have never seen a manual for putting the world back together. Maybe I’ll write one someday. Meanwhile this website is a good place to start. I hope people will come here and tell their own stories.
Take a breather from the politics and the social unrest and all the misinformation and commotion. Here you can tell your own story. Who you really are, what you really do. And what you are doing now to make this world a safer, more harmonious place.
That’s the blog for the day.
Thanks for looking at it.
