Who Knew?

There is a Presidio College of Sustainability right here in SF.  It is the Presidio World College, and you can get an MBA in management.  Robert Kennedy Jr. was the keynote speaker at the graduation last Saturday.   A friend of mine was there and was inspired and dismayed by his speech.   As we know, the Bush people change the laws to suit themselves and corporate interests.  In West Virginia, when strip mining was ordered stopped by a conservative Republican judge, without hours the Bushies had rewritten the law behind closed doors.  The mining continues, topping the Appalachian Mountains and polluting over 1200 rivers and lakes in W. Virginia alone. 

I know this and I can only handle a bit at a time, and yet, we must continue handling the bits that we can.

I do believe good triumphs, and we may need to give it a little push.  It was a little easier to slide downhill when we had a whole mountain on which to get ourselves going.  Starting from a flat top makes it a bit more difficult, especially when we can't make the slope more slippery with water because we'll get toxins on our hands, but we can do it.  We will. 

I have been working outside today.  Plants are growing all over the place and birds are singing.  I feel wealth in my soil.
