About Me *** Favorite Things

Rainfall that's counted in inches between drops,
Back rubs that give frisky muscles a rest stop,
Sandstone cliffs weather to strangely shaped beings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Velveteen antlers and chile rellenos,
Burmese gongs ringing & birds singing high-lows,
Sandhill cranes dance their ballet every spring,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Peaks in white blankets top green satin forests,
Moonbeams that shimmer with ocean shore chorus,
White coral forests in seas warm & green,
These are a few of my favorite things.

500 flowers cause hummingbird frenzies,
One smile that melts any hatred or envy,
Making less carbon and air bright and clean,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the bombs drop,
Then the Dow climbs,
Pathocracy feels so bad,
I simply remember the truth of all things,
And then send out love, not rads.

-with appreciation & apology to
Oscar Hammerstein II

Wild Fact About Me Hi! I'm a consumer. If every earthling consumes like i can, we will need 5 earths. Please help by sending any extra earth you don't need.
My Philosophy Mindlessness of any sort:
consuming or emitting,
inside my mind or inside my country,
harms me and others.

The way out of this misery is awareness.
What Gives Me Hope Directly observing this craving
inside my mind inspires understanding of the craving inside my country.

Understanding this inspires right action inside my mind. And it inspires my country to come out of blind consuming.

Understanding leads to apreciation of how i got in this predicament & incites compassion for my and all the other minds & countries.

This is the purest power of the people. Since every government & corporation depends on the power of its people, such purity produces the best possible human footprint.

Try it and see.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by No need to wait to be a chief; democracy aint a spectator sport.

For those that like green stories:

"Send More Earth Now"

Once upon a time, many times, Earth took hundreds of thousands of years to clean up toxic atmosphere & stash away much CO2. Hooray for plants and phytoplankton!

They ate up lotsa CO2, lived, died & left their remains to slowwwwwwly become oily reminders of toxic times.

I celebrate their mass graves continuously, like every time i consume energy, wear a poly fiber outfit or dally with plastic.

It's taken me & the neighbors only 100 years of such celebration to release half this buried CO2 graveyard back into the air.

It got consumed verrrrry slow, and we've released it verrrrry fast. Looks like whenever it got sequestered, earth came out of toxic times. Will releasing it so fast make for new toxic times?

OK, i'm consuming just as voraciously & automatically as these earlier earth-cleaning phytoplankton & plants. I've become the most numerous mammal standing atop modern phytoplankton & plants, who ought to be a sturdy enormous base at the bottom of the food pyramid. And i should be in the tiniest group at the top balanced with & depending on the entire pyramid to survive. Right?

Please help me return the food pyramid back to big side down. You know, like the one on the dollar bill. This will help all the struggling plants & phytoplankton at the base ... & everything in between. And humans wont look so silly and huge perched on top.

OR,

Send more earth now, preserve the 5 planet-consuming lifestyle to which i'm addicted, and keep mega consumption going in the USA

until i perish along with the other perpetrators.

Like all the 1-celled critters perished after they swelled in numbers to blindly consume the excess CO2.

Either way, Gaia balances.


Oh, and teachers? Please dont be like those that trained me to be an oil company geologist. Tell your students how the oil really got there.

And for when i do pass a dollar bill, let me gain awareness from it. It is GREEN. General George on the cover did admonish the country not keep a standing army. The pyramid shows the proper ego dimensions: small & vigilant for those atop. That New World Order is something either i co-create, or is someone else's order into which i get swept. And when i pass the ONE on the dollar bill to a leader or a corporation, remember i am one with what they do with it.
What/who changed my life and why Appreciation to Sid Gotama & friends

because he left me a path out of blind consuming and emitting,

and his friends are helping me find it.
