We Are Passengers

Posted on Friday, March 11th, 2011 at 3:00 pm by Lee Welles

Today’s earthquake, and resulting tsunami, in Japan reminds us of a few important truths: we are but passengers on this spaceship; it’s a living ship; the skin we rest upon is alive, and ripples with activity.

I am reminded that my own lifetime is barely a breath in the long history of this planet. My cares and concerns are like sub-atomic particals. Gaia is old and large and opperates under principles that, for all our human nattering, are immutable. That said, I pray for the communities affected by this.
