the news said that there are 113million Americans going shopping today. that is less than half of the 300million of us. last night as I stayed up late to watch Tim Flannery's talk about why we should be concerned about global climate change, I didn't feel too alone in my decision to stay home today.

i stayed in bed till late morning finishing Linda Hogan's Power...about a young girl who turns her back on the white world and goes to live with the old people, the Panther people, beyond the woods. i am drawn to stories like this because i am given permission to recall, without mockery, the world i left behind when i became modern and civilized. I wish to return, in whatever form i can, to that world; this time with much reverence and supplication for what that world can teach me still.
