Tears / by Karie Luidens


How strange it is that I’m attempting to delve into, explore, experience, and develop some small expertise in the most fundamental and vital of questions: how has humanity sustained its own existence on earth over the millennia, and how can it continue to do so in the face of coming environmental and societal challenges in the centuries ahead? And yet lost in that immense scope of wonder and worry, I can still be brought to tears by the death of a single seedling.
