“Wherever you have friends, that’s your country.

Wherever you receive love, that’s your home.”

Tibetan proverb quoted by the Dalai Lama in The Book of Joy (I highly recommend this book!)

This quote brilliantly summarizes my experience of life with and as an exchange student.   Half your heart has moved to a new location.

        This blue planet we call home, just doesn´t like
        that an decided to make some unwanted adjustments..

        It will only get hotter…

      • I was having an very interesting conversation with a geologist about this very subject this weekend. He has a recovery business. He assures that fracking is not as horrible as we think, nor does it do quite the damage the media reports. He does say that the oil industry pumping potable water into fissures to bring up natural gas is a problem, though. I’m not quite sure I’m convinced, but it was interesting to hear his perspective.
