Although the wind
blows terribly here,
the moonlight also leaks
between the roof planks
of this ruined house.
– Izumi Shikibu

We would like to introduce Truthout’s new series, Truthout reporter Dahr Jamail and author Barbara Cecil is about the moonlight leaking between the roof planks of the “ruined house” of our planet.

Dahr has been on the front lines digging out the truth around climate disruption for nine years. For 20 years Barbara’s work and writing has guided people through life-changing transitions, with an ear to a deeper sense of purpose and meaning behind chapters of life that are ending. This series is intended to help us come to terms, emotionally intellectually and spiritually, with where we are as a species, and how to plunge forward to face our future.

What we have to share is written on a carrier wave of love for what we cherish. That love, moving outwards into the world through us, is the moonlight. What we write here is for those with the kamikaze courage to take in the facts of intensifying climate chaos, growing economic inequality, crashing biodiversity, growing fascism, a global debt bubble and extinction scenarios that are already coming through the front door. It is for those who are feeling the implications of these in the pit of our stomachs, even before the radical changes needed in our personal and collective lives dawn fully into awareness.
