“When you realise that you’re powerless to navigate overwhelming seas, just keep watching all points of the come-to-pass. Try neither to sell out nor burn out. Don’t yield to addictions or distractions; remain fully present, painfully conscious, but alive to what is happening. That way you can watch for the cracks that will inevitably appear in the system, and you will be ready to intercede. That way you might even get some laughs.”
– Alistair McIntosh, Soil and Soul.
