Welcome to A Drop of Rain
Posted: April 1st, 2008 by: h2
What’s going on? Things are getting confusing, and changes are going to be coming faster and faster. Peak commodities/population are going to translate to into ongoing patterns of extreme volatility globally, while locally we’ll see how things adapt and evolve. Nature will struggle to adapt, but it will be hard going. Get out there on the trails and see for yourselves how things change during the coming years.
Now and then, when affairs / free time warrant it, a drop of rain will try to make sense of it all, or at least of a piece or two, here or there. Probably won’t succeed, but it’s worth a try, you just never know what will happen, or how.
Maybe a drop will fall, at just the right time, to let something or other grow that might not have done so otherwise, or maybe it will just fall on dead earth, with nobody the wiser.
It’s not every day, after all, that you can say we’ve hit the peak of human existence, in pretty much every way you can imagine, water, oil, raw materials, population, food, soil, you name it. Well, ok, maybe not a cultural peak.
We’ve certainly gotten away from pretty much everything that actually matters in any larger sense. That sorry situation will hopefully change at some point, but again, only time will tell.
