Currently in Seattle — October 30, 2023: Sunglasses and scarves
Plus, embracing spooky season for the planet.
The weather, currently.
Our week kicks off cold and clear. Don’t be surprised to see a bit of frost glittering up your Monday morning like a daylight disco.
Things will start to warm up mid-morning, with temps climbing out of the 30s to top out at 54 in the afternoon. Sunglasses and scarves are the order of the day.
We’ll get a bit more cloud cover in the evening, with a low of 37, which feels downright balmy after the last few nights.
What you need to know, currently.
There is so much happening in our world right now, and to me, it’s one of those moments that seem to be occurring with increasing frequency where it feels like everything is imminently about to get worse.
It’s spooky season, but for the planet.
I’ve been waiting for just the right time to share an essential video series on embracing radical uncertainty in the climate emergency that features Christiana Figueres, Rebecca Solnit, and Roshi Joan Halifax. I think now’s the time.
It’s just as good as it sounds. If you have a couple of hours this week, the 10-part series moves quickly. But honestly it’s so important, it’s best not to rush it. I suggest watching 15 minutes a day, and then giving yourself some time in nature each day to process any personal response you might feel. Don’t judge yourself or your response — remember that you and your body are also part of this planet. You belong here. We all do.
We are all here on Earth together at a uniquely important moment in human history. Each of us have an essential place in this time of transition to a more life-filled existence that works for every living thing.
