Earth Day, 2019

“The Earth is what we all have in common.”

— Wendell Berry

For me, the expanse of sorrow and optimism in this short phrase is far too weighty to summarize in a post. I hope against hope that this year will bring substantial progress towards slowing climate change, more empathy and care for one another, and the humble recognition that we are all in this together - our shared and only home - on this pale blue dot.
