The wind has lessened and it is partially sunny at 7F. Time to blow the drifts out of the driveway, shovel the patio and birdfeeder area, then take a drive with the Isolette and Holga. Eric will be back here the weekend of the 20th to ice fish, ski, and snowshoe, which is always a much anticipated event for us both.
“The ugliest thing in America is greed, the lust for power and domination, the lunatic ideology of perpetual Growth - with a capital G. 'Progress' in our nation has for too long been confused with 'Growth'; I see the two as different, almost incompatible, since progress means, or should mean, change for the better - toward social justice, a livable and open world, equal opportunity and affirmative action for all forms of life. And I mean all forms, not merely the human. The grizzly, the wolf, the rattlesnake, the condor, the coyote, the crocodile, whatever, each and every species has as much right to be here as we do.”
