if we hang some bird feeders

and make some suet

We are all alternately tired or terrified in waves, as the days quiver. The planet needs our love. People and wildlife do, too.

A lot could be toned down and mellowed out with everyday people committing to perma-culture, reducing both visible and invisible pollution in our individual and collective spheres, investing in vertical urban gardens, and reducing and re-using what we have.

None of us have all the answers, but all of us have some.
