The relentless stride of humanity leaves ever-spreading, ever-deepening footprints on our planet. We seem tragically intent on the depletion, degradation and destruction of the critical natural resources that keep us alive and define where we live. This is in part because our fate is so deceptively separated from nature’s flagging race. We have lost our way.
But even as we recklessly plunder the goose’s golden eggs, there are poignant and unexpected harmonies that still remain between people and origin, resonating with memories and emotions we have almost forgotten. And as we struggle to respond, to find behaviours that could curb our ravenous consumption of finite things, the earth goes on, riding the human storm, and somehow sustaining the miracle of fragile but resilient life.
