This is the time… February 2013

Time to welcome a new year…
Get ready for the unexpected…
Seek inspiration so as not to lose the rhythm.
A time to ask unimaginable questions…
And then surrender to the beauty of the instant,
The apex of the curve,
As friends come together to celebrate love.

As hope for better times is renewed…
And faith in a brighter world for all gains strength.
Human beings look sublime as they contemplate the sunrise…
And when extending a hand to those in need.
Our appetite for knowledge.
The genius scientists among us…
The artists who reinvent our existence.

There is no denying that we are an imperfect species,
When so many suffer and perish before our eyes.
Violence, poverty, insanity.
Freedoms curtailed, selfish egos, unrestrained greed…
Thirst for power, hunger for possessions…
For some, it’s just never enough.

The loss of a sense of belonging in nature…
The inability to see life in everything…
Cruelty to defenseless creatures,
Disregard for our vital freshwaters and majestic forests,
The air we breath.
A changing climate and the prospect of more disasters…
And, of course, the blind deniers…
Face the truth, fools!

Now is the time to take on the challenge.
Everyone has a fundamental role to play.
A little every day,
When raising our children, re-educating our parents…
And through our relationships, our work and passions.
So take my hand and let’s go out there.
Our reality can be re-conceived.
There is no stopping humanity’s potential
When we embrace and make it happen.
Life is calling out to you.
Will you answer?
