When you paddle through the mats of algae and duckweed, you can look back and see exactly where you have been. What if life were more like that? Wouldn't it be good to be able to look back and see where you have made a difference, to see what good you have done? But would we be able to handle seeing the harm we did along the way?

Interesting to think about how the world would be different if people were completely conscious and aware of their impact. Would we be more compassionate; more willing to volunteer our time? And I don't know... would we be able to handle understanding all the harm we've done? Would we be able to understand all of the good?
Excellent question.

Traces: they're called children. That's where the evidence of your hard work really shows through.
