Thank you for Haunting Me

 

I had a dream that defied words, so I found pictures to combine and manipulate into an image that is as close as I can come to sharing it with you.

The sounds in the dream were a combination of children laughing and stone silence.

 

Thanks to my friend, Alex, I recently met Derrick Jensen, (author of endgame) who made a profound impact on me in the sense that he radiated joy and humanness as he delivered his heartfelt message of demise in regard to civilization and it’s impact on nature.

 

I believe my dream to be consequent of that meeting.

 

We are children running into a graveyard of our own making.

 

And though it sounds nihilistic —which is the antithesis of the perspective I try to cultivate in myself— I must, after conquering my own fears and adjusting my want-to-believe-in-the-best-in-people attitude, acknowledge my own observations of parasitic aspects of the human being, out of balance.

 

Waking up from a dream is the first step to living another day.

  1. A truly fine textual & imaged realization of Derek Jensen’s exceedingly dark – but necessary – vision.

    Bravo!
