Sometimes we just need a little time – either alone or with a trusted friend – to sort out our feelings, to remember what it is like to touch the earth and be touched by it, with wonder and amazement. Have you ever noticed how bees carry their nectar on their hind legs? How rhythmically they move from one flower to the next. That’s what I am talking about.
Martin Luther King
Honor the work of women equally, especially regarding the most critical job of all, raising healthy children consciously. Adopt policies at all levels of society which value caring and caregiving, and which support human development, creativity and concern for future generations. Tie the development of technology to the ethics of caring. Exclude from economic measurements of productivity, those activities which harm people and nature and include essential non-market life-supporting activities.
