the land…


… our map

as we follow time,
and let our hearts lead us,
we scale the land.

on our way,
heading fast,
we will come to you.

the golden egg,
the healing light,
the beautiful conclusion.

the aches and pains,
carry us there,
like ships that set sail.

I feel something good in the air of timing,
and climbing right now,
i hope you do too.

HAPPY HEART DAY

I WISH YOU ALL THE LOVE THAT YOU CAN GIVE!
MAY WE FILL OUR HEARTS TO THE BRIM,
GIVE, LIVE, GIVE.

A TOAST TO THE HIGHEST POWER
LOVE!

A DIALOGUE…

dear david,
what is happening right now?
why does it all seem so upside down?

i wanted to share my simple and personal post i made on my site today.
as always, when i’m pondering the future, i think of you.

i hope all is better than great, with work and play.

RESPONSE:

Oh Melissa, these are dire times. Just look at Canada after heroically keeping
Kyoto on target and resisting the pressure from the US to discard Kyoto, we
elected a guy who says he doesn’t believe in meeting the Kyoto target and wants
to come under the US umbrella.

We have already begun an experiment with our home and nothing we do now can
reverse what we’ve put into the atmosphere. The challenge is to see whether we
can at least stop adding to what we’ve already done. I am afraid there is a lot
of methane which is a much more potent greenhouse gas frozen in the permafrost.
Now that the permafrost is melting, there will be a huge boost in methane
released which will accelerate the warming. We are in for tough times.

I just gave a talk in the US and told them that I was in the US when the Soviets
launched Sputnik in 1957. In the two years that followed, the US failed
miserably to get their own rocket into orbit while the Soviets put up the first
animal, man, crew, woman. We realized how advanced they were in science, math,
engineering and medicine. The US didn’t moan that it cost too much to catch up,
they decided immediately they had to beat the Russians to the moon, poured
money, people, resources into it and look what happened. Not only did they beat
the Russians, it spawned all of the telecommunications revolution and even
today, 40 years later, when Nobel prizes are announced, the Americans win most
of them. So it’s shocking to me when Americans look at climate change and
immediately say it will cost too much, rather than taking it on as a challenge
AND opportunity!

I’m thrilled to see that Jimmy Carter has put out a book warning about what’s happening.
The damned media haven’t been doing their work either, giving Bush a free ride, the way
Harper got an easy time of it.

Gotta stop. You didn’t want a diatribe from me. Stay in touch. David

…answer maker,

what is happening?
i am not related to chicken little,
i am just confused and concerned.

it is february in montreal canada,
it is above the freezing mark.
this is unheard of,
it should be 20 below zero right now.

bears are coming out of hibernation early,
birds don’t know which way to go,
whales are swimming to Big Ben,
and a generation of baby seals,
normally born on ice (but there is none),
were being raised on land instead
but swept away by a strange storm.

it is no coincidence that the Climate Control Conference,
was just in montreal and created LOUD noises.

did we really miss the deadline to fix the problem?
is there no turning back, just a strange future?
of course there is always slowing down,
and taking responsibility for our own actions.
each individual informed on what they can do.
taking the baby steps to make a difference,
and creating awareness.
(go to dr. suzuki’s site,
and take the suzuki challenge)

when one of president bush’s reps was asked:
should the american people be changing their way of life?
he said “NO!” that the way we live is the AMERICAN WAY.
THE PRESIDENT SAYS IT IS AMERICA’S RIGHT TO DO SO.
protect our “freedom”….uhh huh.
OUCH
that is the most;
irresponsible,
infuriating,
selfish,
short sighted,
obnoxious,
irrational
answer.
CAN’T THEY EVEN FAKE THAT THEY CARE???

i look to scientists and leaders like david suzuki,
to lead the way through this unknown future.

the good hearts and minds of the world,
will do their best,
and make the best of this situation.

the beauty of love and music will survive all.
nothing and no one can take away our truth.
what is really important is untouchable,
it lives inside us and our relationships.

i am sad thinking of the confused animals out there,
but i also know that we too are one of those confused species.
