    Things for me do look extremely bleak and I have no time for false rah rah hope, but somewhere deep down in my soul there’s something that whispers, “We will make it through the dark.” The fact that I hear this keeps me going and keeps me believing. Beautiful post.

    • Thank you Don. Yes things do look bleak. I ran across something recently where someone said that there is no right and wrong in nature, only consequences.
      I think the consequences we are facing now are terrifying. But then there is this apocryphal story of some christian saint or scholar, I don’t remember who, who when asked what he would do if he knew jesus was coming tomorrow? He said, plant a tree.
      Joanna Macy says that yes things look bleak, so what? Her goal is to keep doing her work with no guarantee of success or survival. Hope implies a sense of agency, anything other than that is the rah rah hope your refer to.
