The Touch

Once again it’s seeing something as simple as a branch meeting the water, to be present in the moment to appreciate the touch of real and reflection.

Nature casually creates lovely and simple patterns, it’s up to us to slow down and see what is being created.

At Risk

There are those who would like to profit from mining adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  Doing so puts one of the worlds premiere wilderness areas and an extensive watershed at risk for contamination from toxic runoff.  For those who have visited the area, the resort owners and outfitters, it would be a terrible catastrophe.  Not to mention the millions lost in tourism.  If the corporation really believes their methods are safe, I suggest that it be required that every investor and politician who supports the mine must sign a document that entitles the government to take everything they own to pay for any damage to the environment if their “safe mining” fails.  If they want it, they have to be responsible for it out of their own pockets, not the taxpayer’s.
