I was thinking about Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road.” How easy it is for the weather, climate and life to change. How simple it is for one little thing to change in life and we have to adapt to that change. How soon will the climate change in a way that we will not be able to adapt, to support the systems that feed cities? How easy is it for the world to throw us a curve ball? We’re seeing it now with the volcano in Iceland, stopping the planes and important deliveries, not only of people but goods and services are not getting to where they are supposed to. People are losing money and some shelves that host imported items, are bare. There’s such a delicate balance in life.
