I love observing my girl growing! I could spend days taking pictures of her playing with her cat and interacting with nature. She actually only has eyes for nature. Since she is 4-months-old she’s been spending hours looking at the birds in the garden. In town, she sees the smallest spot of nature that there could be…grass growing between stones, birds hiding in the only tree remaining, ants, bees, flies and this no matter how much traffic or people there is.
This morning, we were having breakfast with friends and we were discussing wether or not the world is a worse place than it was 50 years ago, 100 years ago, 1000 years ago…and we decided that it was not. There were always wars, crisis and catastrophes…the only major difference is that now on the top of all the crisis we are facing we are now have to deal with nature declining like never before.
And I wonder…will my girl still enjoy observing bees in 50 years time or will they all be extinct by then? Will her children be able to play in a baby pool or will all the water be polluted by then? Despite all dark projections for the future, my positive nature wants to believe it will all be possible…only if each of us cares for what is left!
