This morning I’m imagining what could have been if only we’d kept our animal selves intact… if only we’d never allowed our hearts and minds to be colonized… if only we’d fought harder to protect our habitat…

With the help of artist David Ambarzumjan, who at only 20 years old, is creating amazing works like this one, titled “Human Nature”, part of his “Brushstrokes in Time” series.

The forces of the wétiko mind-sickness, of colonization, of cultural indoctrination are strong. Those of us who wish to protect some fragment of the living world must be strong too.
