great story in the American Scholar about Earth and how the planet really doesn’t even know (or care) we humans exist. We like to think our planet does, but why would it, when we treat it so cavalierly? On the road up to Mt. Etna today, trash is strewn everywhere. It is really heart breaking to see it. But in Texas, we are at ground-zero for the golden age of carbon, where the motto is “burn-baby-burn” regarding fossil fuel usage. I’m as guilty as the next guy.
Etna is a part of the world that is special and we should treat it like it is a Garden of Eden. The growers here sure love it.

Meanwhile the storm has subsided. But Etna is popping. Full moon, biblical storms and a very active volcano. Lots of fun on the wine trail in Italy today.
