Work in progress.

I bought myself new underwear for Christmas, beautiful and that will last for years.

But Australia is on fire

I want to travel the world again, see people places and things I care about

But Australia is on fire

I want to draw and to make things again, to sing and dance and...

But Australia is on fire

We grieved last year when California burnt, Siberia and the Amazon.

But Australia is on fire

And we must not run out of grief, or anger, or lose track of what we are:

Guilty. As a species, if not so much individually, but Guilty.

How's this for a New year's resolution.

Pick one practice, or product or style that makes you you, and let go of the others.

Do we really have the luxury of 'lifestyle' right now?

We do not have the luxury of lifestyle right now.

We do not have the luxury of lifestyle right now.

We do not have the luxury of lifestyle right now.

 

Thank you

Caroline Pakel  and Pete Lawrence - Thank you for prompting me to post this here.
