Two Species Extinct each day

I heard on CBC yesterday that there are two species  becoming extinct each day. But our conservative fixation and priority of the electorate remains to be on the economy. The  increase or decrease in the  Gross National Product takes precedent as the determining  factor in deciding on a president and political policy.

I understand that jobs and  livelihood are important  issues but it seems to be  that our values do not take into consideration factors that are aggressively contributing to  global destruction. Why is it that we cant seem to collectively shift  away from the extreme need to own, possess and to consume for the sake of humanity.  When will be the right time to individually and collectively do what is required in regards to altering our personal choices that so greatly affect the whole.

I find some satisfaction in the act of attempting to express my experience of life through painting, writing, language and other art forms. I have been painting for over thirty five years and combine my love of art with a meditative and contemplative way of life. I have an intuitive sense that true creativity is something that arises from beyond and through Qthe self that can be explored and shared through some form of expression although I always hope to open to the influence of that which is beyond my limited sense of self.
