‘Hurt Rock From The Sun’ – Day 263/365 – R1900

,

Two little girls marched with me. When I showed them my painting the older one said, “it’s Earth.” ⁠
The younger one said “it’s the moon”.⁠
The older one said, “but we can’t live on the moon.”⁠

We went to the #globalclimatestrike march in Cape Town today. ⁠

Kudos to the many who were able to join, but considering what was being protested, there were not nearly enough people.⁠

We carried a banner that read “To change our world, we must first change ourselves.”⁠

I’m sending all the love and light I can muster to you, where ever you are on making sense of all of this. Figuring out how you want to show up for climate change won’t be easy. ⁠

This really is a hard truth we’re facing. But we will have to face the future eventually. Perhaps the thing to decide is just what condition our planet will be in when you turn to face her.⁠
