Blog Guelph: Seeing Clearly?


Rainy_Window_1, originally uploaded by Ithomas29.

I was in the mall yesterday (yes, the mall, sigh) and found myself contemplating Sue's Monday blog.
As I was trapped amidst the shopping crazies -indeed ONE of them - it became glaringly evident that I felt oh so gratefully out of place.
I am too loud, too inappropriate and too happy a person to be caught up in the melee and grump of the season and yet still fell victim to the mad consumerism.
This I must keep in check, review, revise and challenge.

And then I received an email today from an amazing organization called AVAAZ.
Here's just a little piece of what they had to say,

Dear friends,
Right now, a major UN summit in Bali has just a few days left to hammer out an agreement on stopping catastrophic climate change. But instead of helping out, Canada is actually sabotaging the UN talks! On Saturday, experts gave us the global "fossil" award for being the worst country in the world on climate change.


Seriously? THE WORST?
Time for a new government.
Time for a revolution.
