    I absolutely loved this discussion between you and David….deep wisdom that I feel so often and despair from seeing the loss of agency and capacity stemming on our reliance and addiction to this false power of material technology.

    I’ve been thinking the same as David ever since I saw The Whole Earth Catalog, and their monthly magazine, in 1970. I’ve been living with this love in NYC, sometimes frustrated, more and more grateful for everything on our beloved Planet and infinite Cosmos. Thank you David for manifesting and sharing your beautiful truth.
