With the world facing the existential threat of climate crisis, I turn to these words from Richard Wilbur.
They bring comfort and challenge, and I like to sit between these two and ask myself what can I do to love and enjoy nature, in the here and now. I ask myself are we too comfortable to let misinformation and corporate interests blind us to what’s happening to our planet, and the inevitable end that we’re sleepwalking towards.
Can we challenge ourselves to be and do better with the precious gifts we’ve got. Can we challenge each other to protect the planet for us in the now and also for future generations, do we care enough to try?
