If a woman in your life goes quiet today, it probably isn't because there i s nothing on her mind or she has nothing to say. She's waiting. Something new has entered the scene. She is waiting for people to catch up, to understand how things are different now.
New and unexpected information has reached those ready to receive it about climate change, causing grieving about the condition of the planet. Ethic and truth are being tested. There are those who feel the old ways are tried and true and should continue. Others see a new reality and know that new technologies, new energy sources are needed. An adjustment is necessary, but some are not quite ready to go there. Others are worried about waiting.
Some wait quietly but do not mistake their silence for agreement. There is tension between compassion and action today.
