the “Bed of Nails” metaphor for sleepless nights is a bit of a nightmare when I lay upon it.
Relax.. Do less.. Save the *planet.

*Actually, the planet will be okay... Humans... Not so much.
Climate change mitigation may have a minimalist solution: Less is More. Let’s nap.
Human activity has been linked with a too quickly changing climate. The problem may be a defining issue for this moment in time, but it seems to be similar to a Zen Koan, an insoluble puzzle. The idea of the koan is not to be solved, but for it to tire the mind until it dissolves. If human activity is part of the problem, maybe less activity is a good idea. My mind is tired. I believe I’ll have a nap.
The transition off fossil fuel is already happening. There is enough oil in reserves to carry us through to the new age of renewable energy. Shell oil intends to go back to the fragile and harsh Arctic environment this summer to try and drill for more oil. Pete Slaiby, the Vice President of Shell Alaska admitted, “There will be spills.” Spills seem to be his vice.
Last time Shell tried the Arctic in 2012, they had plenty of mishaps including a rig running aground. The Obama administration predicts 800 small spills and two large ones, if Shell finds oil in the Arctic. - Source: www.Greenpeace.org
Don’t drill Pete, take a nap.
