The desert’s beauty after the first rains of the season have always reminded me to consider following the gestures and cycles of plants. Their lives are not secret, in fact they are quite structured and public.

Plants, living all living creatures have cycles, however We the People disrupt our cycles for reasons known and over-blown:

Time is so precious that not only is there none to waste, there’s also not enough allocated to the pleasure principal…The Pleasure Principal is for doing and wooing…

Light is a source of energy to gravitate towards and when shade is needed plants grow in that direction—we the people lather the epidermis with sun-screen before we seek shade…

The Earth is full of nutrients and is the largest ion generator in our know Universe, but we the people cover the earth with concrete & asphalt and further distance ourselves with layered cushions called shoes…

Plants replenish air by the exchange of carbon dioxide (CO2) and Oxygen (O2) while We the People burn fossils and consume O2 while creating CO2, with no return.

We the People…we the people, are top of the food and animal chain seem focused on destroying the roots that feed us.

Everything must change that needs to change…
