“Fixing” The World Standing in the Tragic Gap

I’ve been grieving about the state of my country, and the state of my fellow Americans with some level of ongoing heartbreak. I’ve had a low level of chronic grief the past four years for the state of the country and my fellow citizens who support and continue to spread fear, hate, and lies. I’ve […]

Election Day Prayer for Healing the Heart of Democracy

On this election day, those who study such things tell us that we as a nation are more divided than at any time in our history since the U.S. Civil War that was fought during 1861-1865. In many ways that war did not settle certain viewpoints of what kind of country America is or could […]

Eco-literacy Part 5: We Measure What We Treasure

Eco-literacy Part 1: The missing element in our connections and decision making with our environment

Here’s a question you may not have heard before: What is the real currency of our planet?   As toddlers, we begin to naturally learn to respond to and speak our parents’ language. We learn soon enough the words for coins and dollars, and their value to obtain things we want. In modern human societies […]
