Keeping track makes the thing matter,
leading to a wide-awake life.
The 2 generations down from me value this Earth
in a way I didn’t as a kid.
Value it in that they learn it & figure out how to care for it.
My grandkids’ parents know they have to be positive & constructive
to ward off intentional trumpian chaos w/ facts not fantasy.
Lots of science, history, nature, marches, writing, letter-writing, & talk.
Keeping track is vital. Our 6-year old notebook-keeping-Bird-watcher is learning this. A 420 character 9-liner.
