Our planet is great.
Greatness comes from hundreds, thousands, millions of little things, which, when all put together, forms our world abundant with life and luxuriance.
Where we every day can explore, face new wonders, be filled with reverence, awe and humility towards the profound greatness of our natural world.
Yet every day, every hour, every second we make the little things disappear forever.
Yesterday the western black rhinoceros, today maybe the leatherback sea turtle, tomorrow maybe the honey bee.
When the little things are gone, greatness vanishes and leaves us all alone in possession of nothing but dead things. Choking in economic wealth and material prosperity.
With empty hearts. Empty souls. Empty lives.
And then it’s too late to regret.
But it is not too late just yet. I found out this morning while laying flat on the ground.
There are still lots of little things worth appreciating and preserving.
There are still greatness left.
