Honor the Earth

Chris Eyre’s intro film

Honor the Earth  with John Trudell’s music

It’s Native American Heritage Month.

Do you love mountains?

Heads up, mountains are losing their ‘heads’ in Appalachia, one of America’s areas of dense biodiversity. Why are mountains losing their tops? Why are valleys being filled? Why are streams being contaminated? All for the love of coal.  If you prefer mountains with tops, trees, animals, clean streams then click on the image to learn more and how you can help by spreading the word too.  Ignorance is not bliss. We need to demand clean energy for everyone. It’s possible. It’s not a puzzle. The technology exists. It’s will power that’s lacking.  Consider the dynamics of supply and demand. How can we use it to get what we all need? “Demand” clean energy development for solar and wind sources.  Developing these sources could put a lot of unemployed people to work in everything from manufacturing parts to installation to maintainance.  What are we waiting for? Gas masks to be required for venturing outside? Does our air have to be toxic before we act? 

Last night I attended a presentation on Mountaintop Removal hosted by the local Green Party and announced on KKFI.  I was not certain what to make of the fact that many of the people present were elderly.  There was only one young man in his mid twenties.  One.  I found this very unsettling. 

A cool gift~ Nebraska in December.

Nebraska in December

If you’re boiling and broiling like we are in the Kansas City Metro—and in Russia where there’s a deadly recipe of HEAT, drought, smog, fire, vodka–yes vodka plus swimming adds up to drowning–and a lack of firefighters, this is my little gift today. Imagine you’re driving along an old state highway  in Nebraska in December and the winds are so strong across the open road that you’ve got to stop to rest your hands from gripping the steering wheel hard in order to not have the car blown, literally blown, off the road. Then, not thinking about the fact that you weigh much less than your car, you decide to try to photograph the wind from outside the car. Quickly you realize that this is only possible from an upright position maintained by wedging yourself between the open car door and the main frame of the auto.  Yeah. Cooler?  If not, there’s always your freezer–or the freezer department in your local faux food frozen food aisle. Or Chopin on the rocks. Odd to think of drinking a Polish pianist. But add his Nocturnes to the iced distilled potatoes and–it’s not just Nebraska in December that’s chilly.

Apple Blossoms

morning, enthralling scent

entices an urban~born child outside into paradise

searching for sources

discovers overwhelming apple blossoms

desiring only dissolution, merging with fragrant wind

~~quickly she learns not to voice such or other joy
