Hard Choices

Hard choices
giving up my baubles
my toys
my collections

Hard choices
learning to walk
or bike
or ride the bus

To slow down
to take less
to share more

Hard choices
exchanging a world of
on / off
win / lose
mine / yours
for a world of
I wonder…
Yes, and…

Hard choices
embracing impermanence
living with complexity
with uncertainty and pain
embracing it all
living it all

Hard choices
saving our home
saving our earth
