I am...

Did you see it...
the sunrise this morning
or was your day filled with the weight of the world...
your job...
and trying to make ends meet
in an unforgiving, violent, polluted environment...
is this a nuclear sunrise?
Can you imagine,
have you the time to ponder
what a sunset reveals in Japan...
have you considered the people,
the roaming bands of cattle and abandoned pets...
or do you listen to FOX news with your
eyes and mind closed.
Will you be eating the leafy green vegetables
and toxic milk laced with the fallout
quickly covering the globe...
or will you be protesting the building of more nuke plants...
will you consider your foot print
and what you will leave behind...

House Things
My dear friend Brandon has posted the trailer
for the new documentary 'I Am',
is this the new direction we all seek...
to the new world and a new age?!

Thanks Brandon!

I happened to catch Tom shadyac on TV yesterday and one of the things he said that rang true for me was.......that we can all do something. It doesn't have to be some grandiose gesture to matter. It's the butterfly effect, ya know? I haven't seen I Am yet, I will make a point to see it now. Thanks Sharon.

Love your sunrise. We all need to think carefully about the "footprint" that we leave for future generations.
