I work for an hour a week on a farm. In addition to getting our veggies from there ,it's a wonderful excuse to be under the sky with little rolling hills around us surrounded only by farmers and their fields. I will confess even that is probably a bypass. A way to convince myself it's all okay when the concrete jungle I passed assures me it's not. Ironically ,a new housing project is called Nature plus . How funny and heartbreaking - they are destroying habitat as we speak and then marketing it as Nature . 

I agree with Marye . Let the shit hit the fan . At least the truth will then be out there and everyone has to deal with it . As far as equalizing with it is concerned ,I haven't yet. The dark density of depression overwhelms me and then I try to distract myself . Whew !
