So I have to tell the story while we sit together.
Sit here with me.
I have to remember.
If Einstein was right, and a problem cannot be solved using the mindset that created it, perhaps we should be discussing our climate troubles with people who do not share the mindset of the industrial machine…
As we made our way to the house of the old rainmaker in Botswana, we grew excited at the thought of an untapped network of professionals who might know the medicine for climate change. We arrived, greeted and soon learned the rainmakers had long since given up making rain.
When we asked why, the old man laughed as if it was obvious. “Nobody actually makes rain. Rain simply comes when the land is right.” He stared out at the sandy paths between concrete block houses. “And it is not right.”

Seashells, hyena and impala bones, a piece of vulture skull and elephant skin tumbled out of the wicker bag onto the mat, the seashell denoting my heart however rolled away onto the carpet.
