Sweet Dreams!

Today, I was in Sloat nursery looking for plants and finding them. Tiny new impatiens, with buds like fairy lanterns, are planted. A brother and sister were skipping about. She showed everyone her new shoes, shiny with blinking lights. He was proud of his Tevas and little socks. These two children are with me tonight, as I feel so clearly why we must work so hard to save this earth, for the beautiful children who are here in their fragility and trust. How can we let them down?

Maureen Dowd today again brings up Lee Raymond, who according to a New York Times story, received more than $686 million from 1993 to 2005. "That is $144,573 for each day he spent leading Exxon's "God pod" as the executive suite at the company's headquarters in Irving, Texas, is known."

Dowd concludes: "The United States could have begun developing alternative fuels 30 years ago if Dick Cheney hadn't helped scuttle an ambitious plan in the Ford administration. By the time these guys get gas from cooking grease, global warming will have us cooked."

Hmmm! I began with sweet dreams, and I still believe in them. Let us all dream sweetly tonight, and maybe we can make our homes from cookies and trans fats, like the witch in Hansel and Gretel. Let's leave our arteries, all of them, both in and out, clean and clear for flow.
