Taking part in a fun run recently through a rain drenched
landscape, I pondered how easy it is to live a life that
divorces one from the natural world around us. To rush
around in cars and planes, communicate electronically
with those both far and near, build fortresses in fantasy
lands with the click of a mouse, vicariously explore far
reaches of the globe through a camera mounted on a
drone. Wonderful things that decades ago people could
only dream about. Yet, the world is here waiting for us to
become aware, to breathe in the scents, feel the breeze,
hear the sounds of creatures and connect with our
environment and be uplifted.
Perhaps this water crisis is a wake up call, making us reevaluate
our way of life, teaching us not to take certain
luxuries for granted, to think before turning on a tap, that
what we do affects ourselves and others. Read up on how
CompostLoo are doing their bit to make a difference.
