I love the zen haiku. The resources you list are the "moon." Especially helpful is the Venn Diagram. And thanks for sharing your responses.
The perfect format to encourage realistic actions…or non actions. Well done and thank you.
This is so good and so needed. Climate anxiety is never not buzzing in the back of my life at all times. It feels so insurmountable, and this helps. I keep thinking about joy lately, esp this week, it feels so hard to get it and hang on to it. I think you're right that we have to cling to it and believe that we deserve it.
YES. Getting real is so necessary to counteracting a culture of performative idealism. Thank you, Allison. Me? I'm not vegetarian, much less vegan. But I do make Indian foods and other dishes that are vegan or vegetarian, and I like, so cutting down on meat. When I buy meat, I buy local and pastured: It tastes better, it's healthier, it's better for the animals than large-scale production, and the cost ensures that I cook it far less often, and extract every bit of value. That $20 chicken also provides enough stock for at least five meals of soup.
