{2020} Wild Diaries :: Day 2

All seems quite natural according to the tweets from the birds. The river has always streamed LIVE.The world doesn’t seem like such a frighten place when you get your news from the trees and the bees.

And just like that, I sink in. The outer world can melt away for a few days. It won’t miss me and I won’t miss it, momentarily. This time is an important reset. My body has been feeling the building tensions and the growing fear that is rising from the Collective. For the past 4 months we’ve been living in a world of great uncertainty. We don’t know what's true or what the future holds. Our foundations have been challenged or possibly even crumbled.

I’m sure questions have been bubbling up such as: “What are we to do?” and “How do we continue on when we don’t know the fate of our planet?”

The truth is I’ve been caught up in this way of thinking as well. But, Nature has a way of reminding me the truth of things.

The truth is, if you were to wander out into a remote place on this plane, it would have no idea that we are in the midsts of a Global Pandemic and a Racial Injustice Movement. Think about that for a moment. Think about it in the context of “if a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, does it actually make a sound?”

If a human wanders out into nature do the problems of humanity still continue on?
