life (as we know it), on the other hand... uhhhhhh...
(...tic toc, tic toc, tic toc...)
once we let go of that idea, it might become a tad easier to observe this earth-bound process with an "oooooooooooo, ahhhhhhhhhhh" fireworks-display mentality.
this is not to say that we should not attempt to care for our mother earth while living in harmony with her natural cycles. ..it is to say that the human ego (natually) places a very high value on "us," when (in Reality) we are just a small part of the flowing, Uni-Verse-All tapestry.
in times of dramatic change, the keys to Happiness/In-Joy-ment will be pretty much the same as they are right now:
* Gratitude, for being able to Play (in the first place)
* re-Lease (of expectations, needs, attachments)
* For-Give-ness (of self, as well as all others)
the beauty of these "keys to Happiness" rests in the fact that we can practice them Now. ..we don't have to wait until the polar caps melt (creating a global-warming ice age of biblical proportions). ..the keys are free, they work immediately, and can be practiced at any-time by any-one.
in a pinch, we can also practice the "half-smile phenomenon," as described in the link (below):

* picture "tic toc" taken a little over a year ago, in queensland, n.z.
* definition: "eventually" (event-u-ally). ..when "u" (us) ally (or align) with y/our events. ..event-u-ally.
think about it... :)
