How will we live tomorrow?

“How we live tomorrow is anchored in the past. We have to understand the past to make the present and future better. As for the big picture, global warming, I am concerned but don’t have the answers. We have to be aware of our resources and utilize them well. And we have to have compassion. That is the key. To care for each other.”

Mitch Bradley, Owner of Heebs, locally owned market, Bozeman, MT

“God’s laws are created to give us order and create family. Our sprits love God’s laws and His plans. But we occupy these carnal bodies. Our bodies want to experience everything. They are free of our spirits. But how will we harness our bodies to support and enhance our spirits?.”

“Global warming is real. Up in British Columbia, which is rain forest, you can pick up moss and crumble it in your hand. It’s that dry. You used to walk on it and it cushioned your feet. When that happens, there is something wrong.”

“I moved to Jackson from Mexico City when I was seven. I am 21 now. I love living here, but it has become so expensive. I have lived in Victor for the past eight years, where I get a four-bedroom house for just over $1000 a month. A two-bedroom in Jackson rents for $2000 a month. A local photographer, Anne Muller, has started a group called Awareness to raise consciousness about the problem. When a new hotel opened, a large group of long-term residents was displaced. This is a huge issue in Jackson.”

Montherrat Brinal, Great Harvest Bread Company, Jackson, WY

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.
