Zinnia’s school had an egg hunt yesterday at which the “Easter Bunny” made an appearance. The Producer fled with her bucket, a similar reaction to the one she had at their Christmas party with Santa. I realized that she has an innate sense of facade, a trait kids seem to share. But adults tell them to stifle it, “come on it’s just fun,” and then when we get older we simply turn that into, “what are you, a conspiracy theorist?!” I have also noticed that The Producer has an innate desire to participate and help around the farm. I can see how parents would say, “I’ll just do it myself because kids are messy, awkward, take forever, etc” but once again we have discouraged what could turn into the curiosity of an adult who is engaged in his or her community. Just some thoughts on this Easter weekend. Being a parent continues to teach me so much about why Jesus said, “Anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” For those of you celebrating the empty tomb today, hosanna! One of my favorite verses in John is the very last line, “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.“

There is new pressure on journalists to start using the term “climate emergency”. Todd Myers is coming on tomorrow to discuss. He is Environmental Director at the Washington Policy Center and gets more side-eye in Seattle than anyone I ever interviewed about the environment. He was the first person who ever emailed me to say “hey plastic bag bans don’t do what the politicians claim.” He is also author of “Time to Think Small: How Nimble Environmental Technologies Can Solve the Planet's Biggest Problems.” Any questions for Todd?
