i believe

in the powerful gesture of carrying a reusable mug

in the new story

and riding bicycles

not owning what we don’t need

in local book stores

and paper books

telling our children the truth, always, even when it’s difficult

in unseen acts of integrity

light rail

dark skies

the cello of martin watkinson. the piano of khakia buiatishvili. the guitar of brittany howard.  

eating slowly while sitting down

sitting down

standing up

the innate human capacity to live in tune with nature




our future.
