A Climate Rally
The last time I marched in San Francisco,
I snuck out of the house, ran away to San Francisco with ‘Flowers in My Hair’.
This time was a replay.
I didn’t want to tell my Octogenarian mother
that I was going to San Francisco
to march for the Environment.
She would worry.
I snuck out of town without telling her,
and my son ratted on me.
Little did I know that I should have invited her.
My fellow marchers, those human’s that care about our Planet,
were Baby Boomers and Senior Citizens.
There were Grandmother’s, Great Grandmother’s
and young families, mom’s, dad’s and babies.
I was glad to see them. This is not the radical fringe.
These are real people who care about our Planet.
We need the Radical Fringe, the Granny’s in the middle,
and everyone else we can get to change our looming future.
Police Hanging Out
Finally joined Greenpeace: Meet Chris.
After the Climate March I was interviewed by Liana Vola, from Ontario, Canada.
Liana Voia (MA, PhD) conducted all video
and radio interviews in the arts/therapy series.
Here is the link to the program:
Listen if you feel you must! It’s about my art, and environmental influences on my art.
I was speaking from the Ferry Building Pier, watching sailboats slide by.
Chris Jordan Art Website:
To change the world you must change yourself first.
Guruji Krishnananda, creator of Mansasa Fountation,
spoke of healing the planet by our ability to change ourselves.
Personal resolve is needed to save our planet for our children
and this will take a conscious focus.
This is not easy to accomplish in our busy lives.
I think of my future grandchildren facing a world crisis,
the temperature of the earth rising,
an event out of their control, because 50 years before I was too selfish to change.
Whatever I do now will affect them in 50 years.
