Thank you, good suggestions
I found this helpful.. The casual use of terms like ADD and others has often made me uncomfortable. This provides a useful context for viewing the broad spectrum of experience, which includes what is typically viewed as normal and the range of variation, with less stigma.
So many i’s and I’s! The evolution from small and self-focused to being a light for others sounds good. Perhaps the next evolution can be with no I’s. (Egoless)
Agree fully about need for perspective of interdependence. More education and understanding of that is essential. I am not so keen on some of those strategies that make it all about similarity to humans, though it may be that is effective and perhaps necessary in the current world. Each creature or species could be appreciated for its own nature and qualities.
A topic some may not need or want, but it’s important that people are aware of how pervasive and toxic these PFAS chemicals are. And for these products, those who use them need to know the risks and alternatives.
Just reading about this place is like being transported into a very different world.
The historical perspective is helpful, and brings out the ongoing search for balance in relation to work.
Proving yet again that “Necessity is the mother of invention”
So many questions this new tech raises. Aside from the educational issues, there is the effect on creation and appreciation of all written works going forward. Publishers evaluating new works... Readers not knowing if what they read is the work of a writer or a machine. Some may say it doesn’t matter. Yet I feel some sadness just thinking about it.
The decline of quality and durability of products is so pervasive. And so much a part of our environmental problems. Difficult to reverse this unfortunate trend.
Good to see a creative focus on food waste and what can help change habits.
Useful look at the dilemma of social media platforms which monopolize and exhaust societal attention. He notes “Other models are possible.” Curious to see if they will be able to shift the level of discourse.
Another lawn-related, including history and symbolic role of lawns. It’s time to revisit this in the context of environmental and especially water use issues.
An unfortunate conflict, hope they can find an alternative space or other solution
Good to see the ability to survive and thrive in the absence of smartphone connection. Hope these brave “luddites” continue to enjoy the direct experience unmediated by devices.

I’m pro-standard as well, and look forward to the end of both springing forward and falling back.
A poignant suggestion to open and re-connect with the world around us, turning our senses and lenses outward.
