There was a time when I would roll out of bed and onto the floor (my bed was not far off the floor) and do yoga. Go for a run. Eat. Ride my bike to the graduate studio and work. This is a pattern that I have continued for most of my life. It stabilizes me. It is a consistent thread that runs through my life.
Because #Iamresilient. We. Are. Resilient.
Things are in flux. We need to remember who we are. The curtain is being pulled aside. Many things are culminating.
We. Are. Resilient. Together.
One of the ways I cope is to retreat into science. Hang on to your socks, because there’s a lot unfolding.
The sleeping giant of the carbon cycle, the arctic methane, is beginning to be released.
Shell Oil is using solar power for its fracking operations.
Not surprisingly, climate change is creating clouds that are heavily laden with water droplets and ice crystals which trap outgoing infrared radiation and help to accelerate the formation of hurricanes.
Beyond science there is anti-science.
The far right in Germany is attacking scientists as their COVID-19 infections explode.
Herd immunity is the new US strategy for COVID-19.
The whole election debacle is righteously frightening. It remains to be seen how crazy it will be.
Right-wing violence and police repression hangs over the US election.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. Knowing what is going on helps me to stay centered. I do however avoid the Kabuki theater of the election. It will soon be over and who knows what the next chapter will be with regards to that.
The times are changing. I can feel it.
Can you? How are you staying sane, being resilient, thinking outside the Kabuki box?
It's your open thread, now...
