The Beautiful Ordinary

The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it. If a mountain is a deity, not a pile of ore; if a river is one of the veins of the land, not potential irrigation water; if a forest is a sacred grove, not timber; if other species are our biological kin, not resources; or if the planet is our mother, not an opportunity - then we will treat each one with greater respect. This is the challenge, to look at the world from a different perspective."

~ David Suzuki

Spaces

Enduring loneliness is almost invariably better than suffering the compromises of false community. Loneliness is simply a price we have to pay for holding on to a sincere, ambitious view of what companionship must and could be.
