Tonight I am feeling impatient, and tired of ‘just’ writing. I want to step into action, and shake things up. This is a recurrent feeling I have. How can I best help bring about some of the changes that we keep discussing and advocating in this blog?
Tonight, I am feeling powerless, and I don’t like it. Earlier today, I drove my daughter to see a ballet at the San Francisco Opera, and I got mad again. My head went spinning as we stayed stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway. Nothing has changed. The traffic is still congested, and every second that passes we are sending out more tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Tonight, I am feeling restless. I want to grab one little piece of the big monster, and start gnawing at it. Then comes the question of where to start? It seems that short of getting involved in policy making, nothing I can do will make much difference. I wonder how many people feel the same way.
