As time goes on, I have come to feel that, unless we perceive the global pandemic as a a transformational opportunity with an imperative that we use it as a life lesson to fundamentally reconfigure how we treat each other and our planet, all current suffering would be further wasted.

Kindness, self-sacrifice, reducing economic waste, ceasing exploitation, only doing what is needful, are nothing new, but in today's pandemic we can more easily see the useful necessity of those and other virtues.

A new, soon to be released major film by Sir David Attenborough on our generation as having a final chance to do differently if our race is to survive, drawing attention for further example to rewilding - nature swiftly refills the gap if mankind vacates some of its occupied space - gives further cause for hope.

Just some thoughts on a Sunday before breakfast!

Nice to keep in touch with those still here

Paul

Hi,

      A quick question.......why are so many people demanding that things return to "normal"? Normal was not that great! I mean, you don't see innocent kids getting shot up at school

any more. Why would people want to go back to that??

 

Stay distant (and safe); wear a mask; and llave sus manos,

Marty

Hi Marty

D'acuerdo mon Ami

Just watching Biden speaking live in Grand Rapids

Covid still seems to me an awful opportunity for humans to relearn our relationship to the world and each other

Yet nothing of this or that is easy

Looking forward to that malt whenever next we can

Blessed isles of the Blest

Paul

Hiya Paul,

I hope all is going well with you.

It amazes me how something that should be bringing the world together has had the opposite effect. 

 My country is armed and ready to fight over wearing a piece of cloth over one's nose and mouth. 

Who'd a thunk it????????

Peace

Marty

The best and the worst of all mankind are showing themselves simultaneously. Stay safe Marty and Paul and all the rest who cast their eyes upon these pages.

As for me, I'll keep having hope, going to work, coming home, doing what's necessary and keeping love in my heart.

I have three new kitties to keep me occupied

May the Universe have mercy on us all.

Perceptive and succinct observation Disa.... Reminded me of the opening lines of A Tale of Two Cities...

Good Health to you, yours and new kitties....life ever springs eternal....

Usui Reiki Master Teacher sounds very impressive by the way; hadn't noticed that before...a new qualification? Congratulations if so indeed

Evening Disa, good to keep in touch

Winding down Sunday night now but great to keep in touch with kindred spirits though and through the Wasteland
