1000 Flowers for the Planet - #220 Become a 'Caring' Society
How you ‘care’ for others is very much open to interpretation and each individual will see it in a different way. The dictionary definition is: ‘the provision of what is necessary for the health, welfare, maintenance and protection of someone or something.’ I think that describes exactly what I’ve been trying to demonstrate with my 1000 Flowers for the Planet art project. Imagine the shift in our lives if we were to live by the definition of the word ‘care’. Everything I’ve written about so far has been about looking after people, marine and land species, plant species and the planet overall. Health, welfare, maintenance and protection – these are the words we need to remember and to live by in all our transactions with each other and with the planet. Once we begin to care, we begin to heal, and we begin to make everything better.
