Lynn, this is such an excellent post. It hits home in a big way and is shmitoeng near and dear to my heart. I love that snippet from the Wikipedia entry the capacity to endure . That is powerful. Think about what endure means; the depth and scope; the profoundness of its promise. It’s deep. And that’s where the sadness hits for me. So much of humanity is wrapped up in the antithesis of endure . We have become wired for the short-term with no sense of responsibility beyond our own years.The long-view is sorely missing. We can’t even let the responsibility we have to future generations (of humans or other living beings we share this home with) drive what is we do today. Where there should be selfless living, we have selfish variety.But amidst the direness of our situation, there are beacons of light helping to shine the way. Upcycled Love is one of those. Keep it up! It WILL happen.
