Sending love and dehumidification to everyone recovering from #hurricaneflorence . we were not hit very hard where we are. i spent the rainy days on my water piece, painting prayers for our planet’s water cycles and steady flow. this piece is in honor of water in all its powerful, graceful forms and bodies. #waterislife
Some of you noticed my silence yesterday and guessed correctly 🤱🏽 last night our family went from 4 to 5. we are all overly in love and enjoying our new family member, however for the first time experiencing a tuff start as labour ended in an emergency c-section. we are all well but we have been better!
do you have kids or think about having kids; then think about this: recently i watched "before the flood" on netflix which claims that, with the current global warming we're experiencing scientist cannot predict how that will affect our climate in 80 years. that's actually within the lifetime of this little boy and his two brothers - my children. that scientists don't know under which circumstances they will have to live (or survive?). even though our family is front runners when it comes to being eco friendly, it was when i saw this documentary i decided to go all in, and do whatever i can do to change this current development. because, again according to "before the flood", we can change this development, and improvement starts with i!
i will rather look back and realise i did too much than too little. i am definitely not trying to scare anyone here, but simply share knowledge. don't think: "my small change will not change anything". if we all change something, maybe just small things - it will matter!
I often think, it’s very interesting how sometimes we can be so careless. how because it’s not directly happening in front of our eyes right here and right now that we somehow forget. climate change is happening. not in the future... it’s already started. people living in various countries over the world have seen a huge change already. so when thinking about why at times we can find it hard to really know it’s happening and do our bit... connection. we don’t always connect to it. i went to france in the summer and in the alps it was clear that people connected there. it wasn’t physically possible to buy a plastic bag from a supermarket, 5p or no 5p, there were none in sight. paper bag or tote bag... that’s it. there were no plastic lids or spoons for coffees, there were recycle bins everywhere, no litter to be seen and life still went on... there were also so many other little details. then i thought about it and wondered if, because they’re in the mountains, so close to nature... maybe that’s why. maybe it’s easier to be very caring towards your planet as you’re thinking about your little space on the world. sometimes in the west we live or work in built up areas with not much nature around, we walk or drive to a shop within minutes of our convenience and i truly believe that leads to disconnection. but it’s real, it’s happening and it’s not just the animals who are in danger. us, your grandchildren, your great great great grandchildren. it’s our job to connect, it’s our job to care. educate ourselves, watch a documentary. remind yourself why it’s important. i would highly recommend watching @aplasticocean & #beforetheflood ~ both of which we will be organising a showing of soon but even before then. watch it, tune in, connect and feel it. it’s happening and we need to take care of this planet.. together 🌍
