I like this story. Poignant and timely. I find it fascinating that dinosaurs roamed the earth for around 165 million years and we, with our greater intelligence, have only been around for about 230,000 and we're making it uninhabitable for our species. I do believe the earth will survive. It is an amazing organism and has regeneration down pat. You only need to read up on Chernobyl. Because it is still too radioactive for humans, it has become a wildlife refuge. Some mutations but they're surviving and thriving. The sand god will hopefully see more wisdom the next time around, though 😁

I love everything about this story, Dascha. It reminds me of β€œOzymandias” by Percy B. Shelley.
