My silence here of late is largely due to the distressing feeling that not only is humanity heading, in lockstep, in entirely the wrong direction; we’re changing pace from a jog to a trot, chivvied along by blinkered politicos whose vocabulary is constrained by a single word, one belying lunacy.
The word, of course, is ‘growth’.
I missed out on Overshoot Day.
Here’s an update of the current state of play:

You may be aware that our planet’s leaders (sic) have been invited to attend a
junket Climate Summit in New York on 23 September 2014. A few concerned folks (including me, and, who knows, maybe even you?) will be attending various events around the world such as the People’s Climate March in advance of this occasion to try to raise awareness.
If none of this interests you, then perhaps I can entice you instead with JourneyQuest Episode One: ONWARD!
… After all, you must be in need of a little more *cough* encouragement.
PS nod kelled fokkad ka!*
