Here’s a thought for a gorgeous spring day when the shovel is about as high-tech as I’d like to get.
For all the successes of Western civilization,
the world has paid a dear price in terms of the most crucial component of existence–
our human spirit.
The shadow side of high technology–
& thoughtless homicide and suicide,
cataclysmic climate change,
polarization of economic resources–
is bad enough.
Much worse, our focus on exponential progress
in science and technology has left many of us
in the realm of meaning and joy, and of knowing
how our lives fit into the
of existence for all eternity.
