The tragedy of a death to reflect on Mother Nature and on our Life…
I had a painful experience in the past few days, which made me reconsider the theme of our relationship with nature. We all have a grand dream-need about Mother Nature, and environmentalism, bio, thermal spas, rural vacations are there to demonstrate how much we want to believe that nature heals us, makes us what we are, regenerates us… but if our ancestors have developed from this paradise to cities and technology, there must be a reason!
Nature is not that one shown in advertising or in Disney films: it is hard and often hostile, there to rot and the crop is hard, as farmers know real well. Apples are really natural and have a high yield, and you end up eating only what worms and birds have left … A friend who is a lone climber set up camp under a rocky ridge, the most secure point according to experts. Unpredictably the ridge crumbled, sweeping her away whilst she slept and taking her to another summit she was looking for, much higher.
Even nature helps and Mother too.
