In the midst of writing my next post, The Real War, My dear friend Amber emailed me this beautiful video. It is particularly poignant right now because of a confrontation I've had with an earnest socialist who reminds me of the adage, "The surest sign of an impending nervous breakdown is believing what you are doing is supremely important."
In answer to my visits to his blog I have gotten replies like, "There are a million blogs out there all about butterflies and silky clouds. This one is about what needs to get done but isn't.” and "Maybe you should write a poem about it and send it to the Universe." And on a visit to this blog commented, " opting out. SELF sufficient, the privilege of distance, so that one may critique free from risk or consequence. Unless the very radiance of ones enlightenment somehow enters the universal stream and bestows a bit of glow on everyone?"
Well Troutsky, here's one of the million blogs who appreciate nature for what it has always been without needing to get anything done about it.
