So, we paint the world as the systems fail and Mother Nature herself has trumped the Supreme Court to declare daily that of all the species she has fostered, we really have to go.
Whose idea was it to make car key carrying monkeys? It’s all Henry Ford’s fault, nothing to do with BP or Exxon?
Forgive the prelude rant, perhaps it brought some attention?
What I so love about being active in this space– the democratization of the printing press. What we have available to us, in these blocks and posts and sites is quite an exceptional thing, really.
Sure, we can complain about the rent, we can push it to see that the words find paper– but seriously, the flow that each and everyone is saying 24/7, saying what needs to be said…
It’s remarkable, no?
Postscript: blogging a bit like autobiography, not just the present tense, but in the present.

It’s remarkable indeed, Richard; I agree with you. I feel fortunate to have this wonderful space to write my feelings and the ability afforded to me so that I can read about others’ lives, too.
Please could you also enlighten me about car key-carrying monkeys? I’m intrigued. Thanks.
Um, sure. Man is a primate that drives cars that need keys, so key carrying always, and cars do seem to be driving climate change. 🙃 car key carrying monkeys.
Ah, I get it now! Thanks for the explanation. It makes a lot of sense 😊.
Silly phrase, a good, but missing friend taught me years ago.
Interesting. You had me thinking about the way climate change gurus go on about how we should all use reusable energy to save the planet. They may be right, however, surely it is the ever growing population and demand for more that is exponentially the elephant in the room. Just a thought.
Humans are the virus and Covid 19 was Earth’s immune response, as are fires, floods and winds. Humankind may be thinking beings, but they are not always thoughtful. Have a great day Richard. Allan
Well put Allan! Thank you and you have a great day as well.
So true. This deserves a much deeper comment but at the moment I will settle with …….Aghgghghhhhhh!
It is remarkable how calmly we are taking being pushed off the edge of a cliff and how calmly those who are pushing us are going about their business.
