"We will be passing from the terminal Cenozoic into what I call the Ecozoic. And the primary principle of the Ecozoic is that the Universe - and in particular planet Earth – is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects. If we don’t learn that – nothing is going to work."
And now that I've got that off my chest, I have to add that as a kind of benediction for all those suffering runners, I made it a point to sit for quite some time on my plump rear on a boulder, eating bagel, and thinking of absolutely nothing. I had some fine encounters with hawks, especially hawks seem to be speaking to me of late. And one comical roadrunner - I find the birds much more of a contrary than any serious, determined coyote I ever met. I have nothing magical to report to this journal today, just the magic that is already abundantly there. I wish, for those friends who are suffering the cold, I could bring this warm day to you.
