How to plan for the future in these times?
... build community, network
and buy high and sell low (land viz. ocean rise) ? :)
Read Ursula Le Guin's beautiful ethnographic (California) science fiction 'Always Coming Home' (1985) ?
In this ethnography of 400 years in the future, people llive in the valley of the Kesh (what is now the Napa valley) and the oceans have risen, (and there are nuclear hot/dead spots around the world)
... Kesh life is both beautiful and close to the earth.
The book is also a novella with poetry, music (the music of the Kesh in audio tape accompanied one edition), and insight with beauty.
One book reviewer (NYTs) called Always Coming Home 'lyrical and luminous'.
What would you suggest?
... Generate conceptions?
... having kids can reshape how people plan for the future a lot :)
