It's a hard road
Watched a Tv programme about the Tsunami the other night and was struck deeply by the survivors belief in God - and they were all different religions. I can't help believing like some of them that somehow we humans are being punished for the way as a species we are behaving. Even if you just take global warming as an example and all the extreme weather things that have been going on in the last year or two. Whether or not the government denies that it is global warming (and at some point they have to stop saying that it's just a coinicidence!), maybe the palnet is trying to rid itself of the parasites that are sapping it's life force and energy (like a dog with bad fleas!).
On a lighter note I was out walking yesterday and I was struck by the beauty of wet brick pavements and roads, especially the ones made of those bricks that are almost black. I like them best when the bricks ar in straight rows (not herringbone or fancy patterns). There is just something almost mystical about them.
