Worked a "swing" shift last night. I've been trying to watch the National Park Series on PBS every evening. Last night I had the unenviable job of attempting to get 18 Schizophrenics and Manics to watch the show. Didn't work.
At midnight, in my room in the Monastic Dorm, they replayed it--and I was able to catch part four.
I'm working another Swing shift today (the 3 to 11pm shift) so I took my walk this morning. Bale Lane again. While walking, I thought about the PBS special.
This National Park Series just might bring about a re-awakening of the American Consciousness. Combine that with Michael Moore's new movie on Capitalism--and we just might have a one-two punch of reevaluating our economic and environmental lives. I haven't seen Michael Moore's film yet. But from Ken Burns' National Parks the theme I take away from it is one of : RESPECT.
We all live in a Park. The whole Earth is a Park. We never left the Garden (Park?) of Eden. Where ever we are, that is our Park. Respect it.
The National Park Series motivates me to see my surroundings as a Park. As such, I have decided to add "tidying up a bit" to my walks. So I pick up a piece of trash or two while walking. Not a big thing; but it shows some respect for the Earth.
p.s. As always when in the Napa Valley--photos will be added when I return to the Solar Compound.
