"An apocalyptic mess of raging wildfires, soaring unemployment, mass foreclosures and political paralysis. It's dysfunctional. It's ungovernable"- but it's MY home g-d dammit! No, seriously-are we worried, yes. But what we do *have* now is our present moment. Can you feel it? Aren't we still grounded? As far as my radar goes, I see we are firmly planted. Despite what could happen to our earth, we still have the most fertile soil in the world. Sometimes amidst all the panic and …
