Responsible Tourism

Hanging around Peter and Dtor (see last post) has got me interested in the whole idea of responsible tourism. Especially as we travel a lot, it is hard to be concerned about “greening” the world, when using jet planes so often. Personally my husband and I have sought out various organizations with programs for planting […]

This quote, from the master evolutionary himself, has been around a long time.  I remember thinking – this can’t be true.  It actually calls into question our true nature as human beings!  It […]

Last night we saw the Danish movie A Royal Affair.  It is billed as “A young queen, who is married […]

Powerful Potential of Conflict

Yesterday was Thanksgiving, I felt especially thankful for the cease-fire between Israel and Palestine.  Yet I know deep in my heart that it probably won’t hold and is really only a tiny step forward, not a breakthrough.  I have been thinking a lot about how polarization of views has such a hold on human nature […]
