dirt and babies

1. dirt.  i really want to see this video.  have been thinking so much about dirt and soil.  how in my talking with the land of cairo, what i saw was that there wasnt the earth, dirt, soil to sustain this  city.

Dirt feeds us and gives us shelter. Dirt holds and cleans our water. Dirt heals us and makes us beautiful. Dirt regulates the earth's climate. Dirt is the ultimate natural resource for all life on earth.

Yet most humans ignore, abuse, and destroy our most precious living natural resource.Consider the results of such behavior: mass starvation, drought, floods, and global warming, and wars. If we continue on our current path, Dirt might find another use for humans, as compost for future life forms.

It doesn't have to be that way. Another world, in which we treat dirt with the respect it deserves, is possible and we'll show you how.

The film offers a vision of a sustainable relationship between Humans and Dirt through profiles of the global visionaries who are determined to repair the damage we've done before it's too late. There are many ways we can preserve the living skin of the earth for future generations. If you care about your food, water, the air you breathe, your

health and happiness…

i have day dreams of breaking up the concrete and bringing back the soil to the earth. today i walked in the city and looked at the sad trees that line some of the streets. they sit in little pots on top of the concrete. to say they are alive is a misinterpretation of 'living'.

2. i also want to see this movie. babies!

dear god. i am not even a super baby-loving person. but, watching this for a couple of seconds makes me start craving that damp, soft, milky baby smell.
