The Most Tragic First World Problems Of 2013
Original, Published on Dec 23, 2013
I’ve just learned that a musician friend of mine has had a stroke. Just before I propose a suitable Requiem, and a charity I recommend:
Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation – From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia – dietitians have reviewed and approved all of these heart-healthy recipes, which are higher in fibre and lower in saturated fat, cholesterol and salt.

“Large animals change there ecosystems; they change the physical attributes of the planet. When those great animals disappear, what we are left with is not just part of an ecosystem with a few of those large animals missing. We are left with somethings completely different. It is the the burnt out shell of that ecosystem. There is almost nothing of the dynamic interactions of its amazing trophic relationships left. We live in a shadowland: a dimmed and flattened relic of what there once was. And, what there could be again.
Rewilding is the mass restoration of ecosystems. It gives us the opportunity to restore, not just much of the magnificent wildlife that we have lost on earth, but much of the wonder and delight and joy and excitement and enchantment that we have lost from our own lives…it is a positive vision that gives us the possibility that our silent spring could be replaced by a raucous, boisterous and disorderly summer.” ~ paraphrasing from the lecture given by Britain’s George Manbiot
