The Language of Trees

 
 20121002 163914
 
The trees were winking at me this morning.
 
Or maybe it was morse code.
 
Tiny brights lights kept going on and off, as if someone was hitting a switch.
 
But irregular, like a cipher.
 
I finally figured it out. 
 
It was the light of the sun refracting through raindrops as the leaves moved in the breeze.
 
Nature speaks to us.
 
I hope we are listening.

We are listening. I believe ordinary citizens are, but we 're reliant on every nation's government co-operating. That isn't going to happen while material wealth is top of the agenda, rather than the wellbeing of people, and while there is an overweening and cacophanous demand for supposed individual 'rights'. Apparently, there is a new word - at least I hadn't heard it until recently - ecoanxiety. So much for western notions of prosperity!

But we should not lose hope. Our collective will is enormously powerful and, focused aright, can peaceably reshape the world from the bottom up. It calls for a resounding 'Yes!' to Life.

True, Rosy. Kindness can change anything; it can soften a heart, arouse a smile, and much more. ?
