~Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly out of gas, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a glorious ride.”~ -
One day Mav’s body and my body won’t be able to climb rocks, jump streams, run through parks or urban streets, nor race each other down the beach. We’re racing time and time will win. That’s my motivation and pull to always be on the go with this happy, always live-in-the-moment creature — for myself and for him.

I am staring at my Sun and I am grateful for my Life. Because without Him, we would have forever been doomed to roam the Valleys of darkness and despair. With every sunset, we long for the next dawn - proof that our hunger for the Sun and Life itself has never been greater. Cheers for another day on Mother Earth. #sunset#life#planetearth#yorkshire#bbcyorkshire#calm#grateful#energy#spiritual

Tonight my heart breaks.
Today I received a text from my dad asking a question. “If you could see anything with your eyes, what would it be?” I don’t like answering questions immediately. I like to think about it.
A few minutes later and no sooner did I realize my answer, tears came flowing down my face. A polar bear in the wild. That’s what I would want to see, if I could see anything at all. Something I will likely never see and neither will my son. How long before the last bear is gone? Too soon.
I didn’t have to have a child for my heart to ache for what we are doing to our planet. But because I do have a child my heart aches a thousand times more because it aches for him. The pain of knowing what has been done and is being done to this planet is unbearably painful. For anyone who is educated on the climate crisis you are aware of the devastation, the destruction and what will soon be the end of life as we know it. The sixth extinction will include us and sooner than most people want to think about. If you don’t understand the climate crisis you should educate yourself.
What will be left for my son? Nothing. Survival at best if we don’t pull the break now.
But the most painful part? The fact that we know that if we treat this crisis properly, if we act, we still have a small window to turn it all around. The painful part? The very people who claim to love my son the most and would do anything for him experience so much cognitive dissonance that they are unable to make the very changes necessary to ensure his future. So stuck in their own comforts that even if they can make the connection, they can’t seem to connect it to themselves. Like if they sit and do nothing someone else will do the work for them.
It doesn’t work that way. Everyone has to do their part. The very things people find so beautiful and awe inspiring are the very things they will be the destroyers of. >>——>> continued in comments >>——>>
Gone are the days when cities were the attraction. Nowadays it's all about the country. With the ever increasing urban sprawls, pollution levels and congestion, country escapes have become more valued. We're drawn by the serenity and the numerous opportunities to experience what nature has to offer.
