“Skating away on the thin ice of the New Day”
“That the Universal Mind (!) has written you into the Passion Play
And as you cross the circle line, the ice-wall creaks behind —
You’re a rabbit on the run.
Well, do you ever get the feeling that the story’s
Too damn real and in the present tense?
Or that everybody’s on the stage, and it seems like
You’re the only person sitting in the audience?
Skating away on the thin ice of the New Day”
by Ian Anderson – Jethro Tull

These lyrics bounce around in my head as sometimes I wonder (as I’m sure some of you do too!) of a whatever named god, did he or she or it create this earth, this universe just for us?
Are we the center of all life, the rest there for our taking, to shape, to engineer, to consume. to destroy but ever so rarely to let be without our footprint left behind?
I sometimes wonder have we gotten it so wrong, when did it happen? was there another path we should have taken?
There is no going back, but where to we go from here?
How much are we willing to give up, to how have a different outcome?

To the about me; I’m a landscaper who enjoys what his does, yet I pretty sure what I do isn’t right
I don’t have answers, but I do sometimes wonder what they should be.

One thought on “

  1. So true Jon that it seems like we are on the wrong path, but how do we turn the ship and steer in a different direction? So many of our community systems in place seem stubbornly unwilling to shift. Then again there are signs from around the world that people would like things to be different. Those signs do give me hope.
