|At dawn this mooring I looked out my window to my Manhattan viewscape |
to see a workman flexing his muscles for my camera.
The future many of us want to see these days is just something hopeful. I have written often here, about how fish are indicators of aquatic habitat health. Soil is a material that stands at a confluence between animal life, geology, and water. It reflects the health of all the relationships that make clean water possible. It is what the quality of our food depends upon.
As the year turns, we have a few days to rest up and regather our stamina to go forward, to consider the basics that support us and build our "hope" muscles. As rested as I am, at least today, I think it is just a question of work and not impossible.
In other posts, I have written about Maxwells Demon, the premise from thermodynamics that implies that the energy of work can change the most closed systems on earth, by presenting new data. So, rest means we can do the work of that data transmission.
The task we build our hope muscles for, may be to identify that critical data that can make that critical transformation.
In the new year, I wish us all enuf rest to feel hope, to exercise the work of environmental transformation, to see more fish, that we may enjoy clean water and fertile soil.
