“Rest up, call the important people in your life, stay safe, wear a mask, get tested and get a booster! And if you need some extra joy, gift yourself education.” December 2021

“Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans” Jacques Cousteau (Explorer and marine researcher).

“When the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river is polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize, too late, that wealth is not in bank accounts and that you can’t eat money.” By Alanis Obomsawin from a collection of essays edited by Ralph Osborne and published in 1972 titled “Who is the Chairman of This Meeting?”, part of the chapter called “Conversations with North American Indians” while speaking with the chapter author Ted Poole.

“Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree, you water it and make it survive, you haven’t done a thing. You are just talking” Wangari Maathai (Environmentalist and Nobel Peace Prize winner).

“We’ll never know the worth of water till the well is dry” Thomas Fuller, historian.

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man (and woman’s) needs, but not every man’s (and woman’s) greed” Mahatma Gandhi (activist and pacifist).

“There is almost nothing outside of you that will help in any kind of lasting way, unless you’re waiting for an organ. You can’t buy, achieve or date serenity and peace of mind. This is the most horrible truth, and I so resent it. But it’s an inside job, and we can’t arrange peace or lasting improvement for the people we love most in the world. They have to find their own ways, their own answers. You can’t run alongside your grown children with sunscreen and ChapStick on their hero’s journey. You have to release them. It’s disrespectful not to. And if it’s someone else’s problem, you probably don’t have the answer, anyway.

Our help is usually not very helpful. Our help is often toxic. And help is the sunny side of control. Stop helping so much. Don’t get your help and goodness all over everybody.” Anne Lamott
