Long lapses between posts remain the case. The world and human doings roll along; there is much to chew on. My thinking, commenting, and writing continue, but for multiple causes I’m not yet finding time needed to get them here! This blog remains a ‘repository’ where a selection of foundational ideas, ‘samples’ of our human doings, and pointers to possible solution – that I find valuable and important – are collected in one place.
Today I’d like to refer back to three of these: See my posts “21st Century Vision – Blog Purpose Statement“; “Who Makes the Human Journey and How Does it Go?“; and a post on individual gift to community – Individual Urge to Express Talent. Most of my posts anywhere on the web spring from sentiments expressed in these writings.
The one theme not yet well represented here – that I nearly daily comment on with passion and plea – is ‘earth care’, our stewardship of all earth, all life.
When I began this blog I couldn’t imagine we would continue our reckless assault on earth. Could not imagine we’d ignore the extent of destruction, or the toxification. I’ve had a life-long ‘up close and personal’ relationship with earth and its creatures. At moments I am appalled and grieved to the point of anguish that we disregard our own buried promise as a species while simultaneously destroying the very planet that supports us. So please add “intelligent, wisdom-based stewardship of earth/life” to a check-list of essential 21stC thinking, as represented in the above linked posts.
Today’s post inspired by Richard, who rightfully reminds me that grand discussion within the comments section of a single article with a single strong concern (‘ag gag’ laws re factory farm and related animal abuse) can overwhelm readers who may want to stick to article details!
My Best, Always! MaggieAnn
