If you ever call again.
If you ever see me again.
If you ever hug me again.

You will hear a voice full of broken glass.
You will see a scared version of me.
You will feel my ribs like a fake metal grid around my heart.

I cant eat. I'm exhausted. I can not think about you.
I'm afraid of breaking.

With this overpopulated it really ethical to want to have children?

Had a major argument with one of my closest friends the other day.
First of all he doesnt like kids.
His second argument for not choosing to have children weighs a bit heavier; overpopulation of the planet.
How can it be environmentally sound and sustainable to raise a family. Even if you can provide the best future. Even if you can drive green cars and replant rain forest and shop eco-cotton clothes and eat local vegetables. Every western child consumes this planets resources probably 10 times of a child in the developing world.
So even if we want to see the solution in providing slum dwellers with not gonna work.
My friend has a point. And he is firm in his believes. He can agree to say that one kid is at least better than three.

I still want a family one day. I want to give birth to a child if I can. But I dont want to bring something wonderful into this world just to destroy the planet equally much.

One child? Is that fair?

My flyffy little friend

She is the worlds cutest Tree Hyrax. And I shall call her Helga.
Helga lives in the big tree outside our guest dining in Mara. Such a sweetie.
