Bitch-slapped by a morepork

The best therapy is cavorting with Nature.

I’m pleased to say we’ve been interacting a lot with nature lately and I can highly recommend it. I generally take a kayak or in extreme emergencies, walk. But God would not have given us carbon fibre and adjustable length and feather smart shafts, if he’d meant us to walk.

Some people bicycle to Nature, but most people have the odd habit of getting there by driving cars, which are sourced from all natural products - mostly metals and some plastics, which are obtained from some factories built of natural concrete, and vehicles powered by gasoline which is derived from naturally-occurring oil.

Some power their cars with natural electricity, which is obtained from mining the planet to oblivion to extract lithium and other battery ingredients, then cram the batteries with electricity which is a by-product of water and gravity; but in some cases, burning a sh!t-ton of coal as well. And then they chuck away the used batteries in a festering pile in some quiet corner of Nature, hoping no-one in the future will disapprove, and kidding themselves they are helping the planet more than the people using naughty gasoline.

When we get to Nature, we marvel at its beauty and commend ourselves for making the effort.

Nature strikes back
