There is nothing 'wrong' with celebrating Life's bounty with friends and family.
It can be - and most often is - a wonderful joyful time of laughter and good cheer.
But, increasingly, it is important - very important - not to overlook the larger issues that face our continued survival on this planet.
To that end, this year, in lieu of cards and extended gifts, I have made a sizable donation to an organization that I believe is doing GOOD WORK, work that is helping humanity move forward towards a more sustainable existence on Planet Earth - The Council of Canadians.
Maude Barlow, an active champion and spokeswoman for this organization (amongst other things) continuously draws our attention to the Right of freshwater for all inhabitants. She is mighty opposed to Big Business, in collusion with governments, from diminishing or removing that Right.
I agree with her. Water, like AIR, is a fundamental Life-giving Necessity. As planet caretakers, we must, and can, do better. Please watch this documentary to further understand what really is at stake here. - 'Blue Gold: World Water Wars'.
Then, kindly consider a purchase of one of my decorative Fractal Christmas Ornaments to brighten your festive family celebration this year. - For every purchase made, I pledge to donate 50% to The Council of Canadians so that they can continue to do what they do best.
Thank you for helping me - so that I may help them - help all of us.
Merry Christmas to One & All -
Ho Ho :)
