Somehow I found time to put the baby to sleep (twice!) and listen to this awesome Ted Talk.
I fully appreciate the connection she makes between the virus to the collective choices that we are making in the way in which we live our lives. It IS evidence of how these choices that are leading to our demise.
Perhaps this virus is a wake up call, a final chance for us to pay attention and choose differently? I wonder how many will dare to do so, instead of unnecessarily hoarding toilet paper? Or, if we just use this as yet another hurdle to wait to be over before we go on to business-as-usual world. …until, the Earth chooses differently, for herself. I mean, two weeks in quarantine/social isolation and the waters in Venice are so clear that animals are returning to them. I’ve been there once, and “clean” is not how I’d describe the waters…
Status Quo is not working, hasn’t been in decades, centuries even. Still, turns out human beings are particularly good at choosing fear and death rather than making different life-sustaining choices.
As far as I’m concerned, mere survival is simply not enough.
