But!

The climate is broken

The ozone layer fried

The oceans trashed six days to Sunday (as they say)

The air we breathe literally carcinogenic

But...

 

We. Are. Still. Here!

 

Pretty much everything is broken, now.

 

But not all is lost.

Not yet.

 

(We all know what Leonard Cohen sang

There are cracks, cracks in everything.

That’s how the light gets in

That’s how the light gets in

That’s how the light gets in….)

 

It’s too soon to turn our backs on it all

On ourselves, on each other

On this beautiful planet

(It is still beautiful! Life is still very, very beautiful!)
