A reminder

Colors don’t exist
if no one is there to see them
and sounds are not sounds
if no one is there to hear them.
Rocks are not solid
and sunsets are not beautiful
in the real world.
The real world consists of almost nothing
empty space between the electrons
and the nucleus of the atom
and empty space between the atoms.
We are somehow creating the world
with our senses
and our being.
However, our senses and our being
are also a part of the creation.

I saw an eagle today, a sea eagle. Isn’t that something? In a big city. Fifty years ago they were close to extinction here in Northern Europe. Hunting, DDT, PCB and mercury almost killed them all. Conservation actions, restrictions on pesticides, and winter feeding helped them to recover.

Things can change when people realize that things can be changed, even if it may take years. Indifference, ignorance and greed are not the only options.

Perfection in inprfection

Blue anemones need wood ants for their propagation. When the seed is ripe the plant will bow down to make it easier for the ants to pluck them. The seed is coated with a sweetener which wood ants are crazy about.

However, on their way back home, one ant or another will drop it’s seed and the seed will grow and form a new blue anemone.

Without wood ants who make mistakes there would be no blue anemones.

Mistakes are an important part of life.

A part of us is always genuine, warm and friendly
no matter how much we try to dissemble ourselves with
a cool attitude or sophistication
or protect ourselves behind armors of explanations,
ideology and creed.
We are not complete idiots, none of us.
We can be fooled, afraid, mistreated or brainwashed
but a small part of any of us will always be free and human.
