So today I made a very conscious choice – a never-before-undertaken choice. I joined a provincial political party.
The BC Ecosocialists – http://www.bcecosocialist.ca/
I didn’t undertake it lightly. I thought I was going to become a card-carrying member of the Green Party – was all set to help a friend in my local riding. And then this came along. I read the entire party platform. I got excited. I agreed with it.
I think Greta Thunberg would like it a lot. I know that sounds rather silly – but it isn’t. Not if you listen to her message and the echoes from thousands and millions of others who are demanding a future. Because what we are doing on this planet now is taking the future away from all of us.
The time for compromise and capitulation is over. We need to act now. We need to make dramatic changes. I feel ready to do this: not for me so much, but for the children and grandchildren. They may not be my kids – but yet they are. I am an elder and I am responsible for the state of the earth I leave behind.
So – I am now a member of the BC Ecosocialists. I feel ready to do things that perhaps I wasn’t ready to do even a couple of years ago. I don’t even know yet precisely what I can and will do – or how I will contribute. But I have spoken to one of the party people and the wheels are in motion.
So that has been a win.
Next on the agenda – that one hour time difference has screwed me up a bit – ok – that’s a minor footnote if ever there was one.
I had camera issues yesterday so I went to London Drugs. I think they may be resolved. We shall see. Hiking tomorrow – Wesley or Horne – likely Mount Wesley – I’ll take a lot of photos and we’ll see if that’s all good. I got new firmware installed and I hope that sorts things out.
And other than that, I’ve been feeling an ache in my heart all day. This is not a bad thing. It just is what it is.
I am grateful for every feeling that I feel.
