Today I had occasion to get out of the valley and up into the sunshine. The weather up there was glorious, especially compared to last week's sub arctic temperatures. Part of me did not want to back into that polluted mess, and dreamed of staying above the gunk forever. But the other part of me knew I played my part in making that filth, and I had to live with the consequences of my conspicuous consumption of energy. Either that or take myself off the grid and start some of the tons of carbon I put in the atmosphere over my lifetime. Since I lack the technical skills, I drove back into my sty.
