To be or not to be – active, articulate, connected. It’s Spare the Air time – and you may be wilting (I am).
Maybe you just want to sit on your rocker and eat an ice cream? When the temp is 90 degrees, yes, sometimes. And knowing this heat is happening all over our nation – all over the globe- doesn’t in itself motivate. Do what?
Well, you can go to a movie TONIGHT –

Me? I find pulling weeds, picking berries, putting the chickens to bed are all refreshing stuff after the heat of the day. Accomplishing at least the simple task. Good.
But the bigger world makes even less sense than usual during these hot hot days (hopefully, Petaluma won’t always suffer 90 degree Augusts?) Am scared of this film. Bill McKibben introduces the worst we don’t want to see – but always how to move toward health. Planetary healing. See you there?
