Each morning I enjoy another minute of light. I love the dark but this morning adventure is very exciting to me. That said, today is the day another tree is taken down. It is odd because we saw the movie Avatar last night, which is such an honoring of a tree and this web of life. I loved the movie though I do wish there were a way for the "good guys" to win without a fight. I think of Gandhi.
I used to enjoy football and then I saw a documentary on what it does to their bodies and now there is all this with concussions so I can't even consider watching it. Here is Jon Carroll on the corruption. This is not new. A guy I dated in college was paid to take tests for athletes and yet it seems ever more sobering, the level of corruption in so much of what we see.
And then I read this, and my intention is to use thought wisely and sculpt who I desire to be.
"Thought is the sculptor who can create the person you want to be."
- Henry David Thoreau
