Just a good article in NY Times about the Christmas Eve photo that reframed our perspective on the planet.

“ 'Earthrise' showed us where we are, what we can do and what we share. It showed us who we are, together; the people of a tough, long-lasting world, shot through with the light of a continuous creation."

that is a wonderful article! It inspires an almost religous or spiritual feeling about the hearth and life, yet invokes no deity, which is even more spectacular.

Yeah, I thought it was really well written too. Gushy in a good way, it's THe EArth for chrissake. It's important.

On a slightly different, but still earth and Christmas and permaculture related, I recently watched the movie Zeitgeist. http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/

1/3 case for paganism, 1/3 9-11 conspiracy, 1/3 the elites want to rule the world and stick microchips in the masses.
