“I think of this often. Steven Pinker’s amazing book, The Better Angels of Our Nature, charts the decline in human violence over the past 800 years. His TED talk is a distiller version. It makes me incredibly hopeful.

“However, an ecological disaster would set us back. We can’t proceed toward peace and prosperity if we have stressed the planet to the breaking point.

images“I think of the vast complexity of this, and then when I need to go to the grocery store or the hardware store or my parent’s side of town for lunch, I let these complexities in the background steer me away from the car key and toward the shed key. And in the shed, there’s my bike.

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
