if i had a million free dollars
and i was afraid for our life,
i would help people out of their houses
who can’t afford to live there.
i would hire folks who know
regenerative, more permanent tending, agriculture.
i would turn all those lawns
into edible forest and high desert meadows. (this is the boise idaho version – see for your location location location)
i would start a global university
and call it compassion for u;
and those people whose houses you borrowed
could live and work there for free.
but i don’t.
i just have my pen.
