Nature... it just can't be improved upon, try as we might.
Maybe in the beginning everything was as peaceful and whole and fulfilled as a woodland scene like this. But it's all the striving and working and toiling that turns things awry.
I have been watching that fabulous 'Planet Earth' series on TV and really wonder why anyone would think it's worth spending millions to travel to Mars to look for bacteria... when so much life on planet Earth is going extinct.
If only Darwin could have seen the DVD of 'Planet Earth'!
