My pain in the neck is trying to tell me something
These last few weeks, I have developed a real intense pain in the neck. It’s gotten to the point where I can barely function. Physical therapy, Ibuprofen, massages, nothing helps. Prad thinks I am either too tense, or working too much on the computer. He is probably right. I have been taxing myself, and my body is letting me know. What does that have to do with global warming, you may wonder?
Listening to nature
We all need to listen to nature. Whether it is listening to the feedback from one’s own body, or the unmistakable signs of the planet heating up, we better take notice. Or else we run the risk of no longer being able to function. I am bitching and moaning that my body just won’t bend to my will. I would like to believe that I am the mistress in my own house. The reality is, nature is. From the few biology classes I took, I retained a sense of awe for the intelligence of nature. Nature is the most well regulated factory I know of, with elaborate systems of checks and balances, to make sure that we do not deviate too much from the equilibrium.
The problem of selective listening
This friend of mine came over for dinner this weekend. The conversation very quickly steered towards environmental issues. She is a staunch supporter of the ‘global warming is a hoax’ theory. Her latest is a study from an MIT professor, that she will post in her business blog. “The facts, Marguerite, check the facts”. I was left, puzzled. How can my friend, who is supposedly an intelligent person, come to such conclusions? Green Guru asked her if she would still buy a beach front property? “I have no interest in that”
