“…a profound starting point for people everywhere is to focus not simply on lengthening time but on regenerating place. We must restore and repair and care for the planetary home that will take care of our offspring. For our children and our children’s children, let us all be inspired by the beautiful Mohawk blessing spoken when a child is born –
Thank you, Earth. You know the way.”
~ Roman Krznaric, The Good Ancestor: A Radical Prescription for Long-Term Thinking
