as related to the previous post…………
Today I sat at a stop light at a large intersection. It was sunset. It was nearly dusk and I looked at a crimson westward sky. I saw a long stretch of power lines covered by a large colony of starlings. If you live in a city in north america, you know starlings as small mostly black birds. They are often dirty and they move in huge numbers. Kind of like rats or cockroaches with wings, not to malign any of those species.
The power line was covered for three blocks by three rows of birds, evenly spaced at pecking distance. A smaller group flew over the colony and must have started them because all at once a whole row of starlings took to the air and cause the power line to sway violently. Now, a starling weighs a few ounces. Several of them landing one at a time doesn’t cause the heavy power line the even ripple. Yet a few hundred caused this thick power cord to shake in its anchors.
We humans can only make small ripples in the world. Many of us trying something, anything, to make a difference, one at a time. Or we can sync up, join together. Find a course and take it to effect change. We can improve the future for generations. We are going to have to shake up the power cord. It is our work.
