United in nature



Pino tried to figure out what would happen if 1% of the The One Percenters' salary were used to educate people on the plight of the donkey or neglected animals [or children or the elderly], but the math made our heads spin.

We do not believe that the wealthy should take care of us in areas we are already adept at and prospering in, but when an imbalance happens in nature, nature steps in.

So we stand in our fields today, woman, donkeys, old goats, geriatric fowl, worms working for no pay, and we ask The One Percenters- "Could you go stand in a field, just for an hour, alone, unwired, and commune with a worm or two, look at yourself in the stream's mirror and see what role you could take to shift the wealth structure of the world? If you don't feel the wealth structure needs to shift, we ask you to spend one week in the field, gathering wood for warmth, rubbing stones for fire, and watching birds to see where the best berries are. If you come across a bear or cougar, you are on your own, in a hierarchy you seem to have forgotten."

I love your way of writing, your wisdom and I value what you have to say. I yearn to be in a field of donkeys, old goats, geriatric fowl, worms... thank you for sharing your conversations.

Hi Katherine! Oh to stand in a field with Pino and the gang and commune with the worms and listen to the breeze would be wonderful. Delisa :)

The donkeys try to stay calmly connected to the outside world.
