As we approach 2020

As we approach 2020, with all the suffering and violence in the world, with the confusion spread by our “smart” phones, by platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, I wonder what is most important, and it’s gradually becoming clear. Albert Einstein once said, “the significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.”

Humanity is at a turning point and we need to simplify our lives if we are to heal. We must seek – and give – human kindness. We must reimagine the world, to quote the writer Barry Lopez.

  1. “The memories regenerate me; they boost my desire to try to work in my writing as a mediator of some sort between the dehumanized natural world and my own acquisitive culture.” – Barry Lopez

    Powerful.
