Gifts of beauty and praise

From my composition notebook for Hollow:

“In a sense, all of us—even the most untechnological, spiritual, and benign peoples—are constantly wrecking the world. The question is: how do we respond to that destruction? If we respond as we do in modern culture, by ignoring the spiritual debt that we create just by living, then that debt will come back to bite us, hard. But there are other ways to respond. One is to try to repay that debt by giving gifts of beauty and praise to the sacred, to the invisible world that gives us life.”
