Today I am tired.
I begin my day making lunch for Verd, get a cup of tea and snuggle back to bed to read the news of the day before starting my day properly. I read the headlines outloud and we discuss our initial thoughts. I usually feel stimulated.
Today is different, my pervading thought is that we’re on the brink of a war. Perhaps we already are at war? In Confessions of an Economic Hitman, John Perkins describes the insidious deliberate creation of the dependence of developing countries on the IMF, the World Bank and transnational corporations as a war. We’ve all witnessed and relinquished many of our civil liberties in the ‘War on Terror’. The current scale of destruction is unprecedented, from Syria to Indonesia’s forests.
When our most influential of leaders ask what works, not what is right, I find it hard to find hope.
But I start my day in search of the positive and someone laughs, and it makes me smile. Today it is Ralph Smart and he’s inspired me to pick up the camera and go out into nature to find joy again.
Why not dive deep into his infinite waters?
