Ngaio’s Facebook link to Video – A letter from the virus.

We need to become very conscious of everything in this video, and we also need to be cautious about over simplifying complex systems.
We need to do things differently than we have.
We have an opportunity to look deeply at what is happening.
For me, it is clear beyond any shadow of reasonable doubt that the only solutions that will actually work involve respect for individual life and individual liberty, and involve global cooperation, and demand respect for the very real social and ecological limits that are present in reality (so all liberty comes with responsibility, the more liberty one claims, the greater the responsibility demanded).
And yeah – I always enjoy walking the dog before I go to bed, head torch on my head but turned off, so that by the time I get home my night vision is fully present, as are thousands of stars (when the cloud is obscuring them). I listen to the birds, the waves, the wind, the trees, the insects, the frogs, the people and machines.
I think about the deep connections, and the responsibilities we have to each other and this amazing beauty we live in.
