Time For An Upbeat Post.
It is a truly glorious morning here, today. A big day for Mrs OR, next weekend, looks also to be a very promising forecast. The garden is looking so beautiful and it seems to put the messing about by our ridiculous Bilderbergers into comic relief perfectly. The "Big Society" of rural Britain needs no lectures from the little boy in number 10, or his cohorts.
Of all the puny activities of man, nothing puts us more firmly in our place than the wonders of the natural world and its simple purity. The raw honesty of life and death in the animal kingdom and the instinctive acceptance of all those natural laws and hierarchy, make our wasted actions in manipulation and Canute like dreams of control of the Universe, look rather lame and ignorant. Be it God or just eternal nature, who knows but it beats the hell out of humanity other than when it too embraces the laws of natural beauty. Poor indeed is the person unable to be awestruck by a starlit sky, a sunrise or sunset and the scenery around us. Poverty of spirit embraces urban dwelling and self aggrandisement. Seats of vain power reside where nature is momentarily buried under concrete edifices. Buildings all doomed to decay long after those cretins who sought such lives are gone. One day nature really will reclaim this planet. Few human beings will be left to enjoy that success but blessed they will be!
