I feel like I have to run faster and faster just to stay in place.
I feel like I don’t matter to anyone.
I feel replaceable.
I feel like every aspect of my life has become commercialized, has become a product.
I feel as though I have become a product.
I feel trapped in a system that cuts me off from my humanity and my empathy.
I am tired.
I am tired of meaningless, repetitive work.
I am tired of fighting through traffic.
I am tired of feeling like I have no ability to affect my future.
I am tired of feeling alone.
I am tired of feeling inadequate.
I am tired of living in a world where economic growth means the destruction of the planet.
I long to feel deeper connections to others and the Earth.
I long for healthy, local, and trustworthy food.
I long for meaningful conversations.
I long to feel like I belong.
I long to feel the freedom to be me.
I long to feel secure and at peace.
I long to feel that there is a future for my children and grandchildren.
I long for meaningful, creative work, for a slower life, where there is time to sing, dance, and spend more time in nature.
I long to come back home to community, to Nature, to the local.

The key to solving our seemingly endless ecological crises.
A structural path to take us back home, to community, to the natural world, and to prosperous, place-based economies.
