On my way to Scotland for the first time in my life. Exciting. But I’m also filled with some guilt. Part from leaving my family in a very busy time of year. But mostly from flying, and generally inreasing my footprint through the journey. The interesting and positive part of it is that I actually reflect upon it. I imagine most still don’t. But changing one’s personal priorities for a larger good is tougher than one can imagine. Why should I change when nobody else does (or very few). And the planet does seem to cope still.
We really do need to construct a story (or many) that helps us with this dilemma.
