I am very conscious of my impact on the planet - constantly teetering between the fast paced, convenience of modern life allowing me to spend more time doing things I enjoy and the giant impact my micro actions have on the planet.
Below I have written about how I want to be.
Did you see her?
Flitting by. Smile ear to ear. Barefoot. Disappearing behind a tree.
Did you hear her?
A swoosh on the wind. A whisper in your ear. A creaking of joints.
Did you feel her?
Dappling warmth amongst the leaves. They brush past your skin on their way back to earth.
Does she leave anything in her wake?
I found a footprint once. The next day it was gone.
Do you remember her?
Yes - replied the Earth - she passed through, ever so lightly, but I remember her.
