All is well in zoomland

Your Donald Trump imitation is legend...
S. Orel
22:22
Indeed it is

Is it possible we don't know how to face our vulnerabilities?
Ben Hume

The doomscroll is real and it’s the most harmful thing. The attempts to try and find an answer during this period leads you to worse and more unhelpful carriers. It grinds you down completely.
S. Orel

Everyone is muted
S. Orel

We both agreed we feel overwhelmed and that results in passivity
Lisa Hooper
55:50
we older folks are very much optimist pessimists.
Kara Jo Levery (she/her/hers)
56:34
I feel a bit powerless and afraid, and that leads to overwhelm and a freeze response.
Monica Barron she/her
56:40
Damn. I wanted to be in a breakout group with Christine's mom
Jay Bulen
57:07
Overwhelm is perhaps the most prominent emotion I feel. I have been one of those who try to behave responsible and to “vote with my pocketbook," but political advocacy is certainly a more useful approach.

hoping for the best while expecting the worst
S. Orel
57:37
and worse.... and worse...
Sally West
58:07
Do you see the Ukraine invasion as a catalyst for moving away from oil?
Amy Puzniak
58:08
I agree with a lot of people mentioning feelings of being overwhelmed. I know that there are small changes I can make as an individual to help our world, but sometimes I feel as though personal actions may not be enough.
Ben Hume
01:01:37
The despair from the sheer depth of it all is the main thing I’ve been grappling with. So many times I’ve imagined all of the issues together, from social justice to the historical precedents and am just overcome with this helpless feeling.
Ben Hume
01:01:52
Thanks for this talk. It’s helped put words to ideas.

Thanks Christine for your eloquence!
Jay Bulen
01:07:14
I feel gratitude for the seasons, and how experiencing the lengthening days and warmer temperatures make me optimistic. I am grateful for those working on policies, processes and products that help protect the earth.
Lisa Hooper
01:07:42
I got to be with your mother - twice! Thanks
Amy Puzniak
01:07:54
I feel grateful for mankind's ability to persevere and for the love that we can have for one another.
Jay Bulen
01:09:02
thank you, Christine.
Ben Hume
01:09:20
I’m grateful for people like you who seek to be there for everyone in the way of being leaders and trying to put good use to our rightful grief.
Monica Barron she/her

Emily Dickinson said "Crumbling is not an instant's Act". Believe it.
Lisa Hooper

Thanks!

Thank you Christine. Since 1958 I’ve been following controlled nuclear fusion and still have hope that this will be part of the way out.
