my personal paradigm shifts

i can remember my father calling out, over forty years ago, ‘safety!’–which meant lock your door and put on your seatbelt (in a time before wearing seatbelts was law).

or ‘lights!’–which meant turn off the lights when you leave the room (kinda like not idling, or turning off the tap while brushing)

i can remember learning the first rule of woodcraft: avoid harming a living tree.

but i was young and eager and naive and solo.

a social paradigm shift might be more demanding. many of us are older and complacent and jaded and, well, many.

it also demands more hope and faith and trust… and patience. like hundreds if not thousands or millions of years.

oh well, i got nothing better to do.
