Now, don’t be cross with me because I have been paddling in deep waters of thought, recently. I have been in a creative mood: that’s why I like blue and green – which CAN be seen without another colour inbetween......
Ah ha. Now this is a book everyone should read. “The history of life on earth has been a history of interaction between living things and their surroundings.” (Rachel Carson) I agree – and we are unanimous in this....Quack!
I am expanding my horizons. I love to dance a cosmic dance: a waltz, or a tango, or a reel is fine – although they all tend to morph into a waddle. (I like the frog, but I think there should be a duck, too...)
I have decided to educate myself, as I am supposed to know stuff, too! Found this to read: “An ethic of environmental sensitivity can derive support from the tradition of stewardship, which has long been central to Judaism, Christianity and Islam.” (Robin Attfield) As a duck, I concur.
Speaking of quacks and yawps, I was directed to watch Mr Attenborough’s programme on television. I found it very challenging. A solemn moment. So I read something important: Psalm 8:3-5
3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; 4 what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals[a] that you care for them? 5 Yet you have made them a little lower than God,[b] and crowned them with glory and honour.
Yey: all powered up! Walt Whitman wrote: I too am not a bit tamed—I too am untranslatable; I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world. Actually, it’s a quack – but I am possibly untranslatable, and definitely not too tamed....quack quack quack!!!!
