In the spirit of spring, this is an entry about renewal, which was the basis of a conversation I recently shared with a friend over some chai.
This visit took place a few weeks ago when the snow had first melted enough to reveal the seasons worth of litter that lied beneath it. My car was parked at her home and on our walk back as we raced through a break in the traffic of a busy, six-lane street we glanced down to notice a stuffed rabbit pancaked into the pavement; "the saddest bunny ever" we agreed.
"Hard as the world may appear, dark as the hour may appear, in reality we exist in a dimension of greater opportunity, greater freedom, greater possibility than has ever been. The challenge then is to not drop the ball, is to know this and to act on it and to slough off all the leeches and back-handlers and weasels and crypto-fascists who want to deny that." -Terence McKenna
