Into The Forest

And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.

This is an interesting article even though the author is a reckless, loud proponent of #patents on #life and #nature (as if humans deserve monopolies on animals' #DNA etc.)

On Wednesday the local Fire Department Rescue Team got a call saying that a motor boat anchored in the harbour was evidently about to sink. They went to check, verified that it was so and lifted the boat out of the water to a trailer and moved it elsewhere for damage assessment. Then they realized a strange sound coming from the cabin and found a nest with six ti... Show more...
 
The cabal of parasitic patent lawyers lobbies for #patent monopolies on #life and #nature -- those #patents help few oligarchs claim to 'own' the whole world -- what a scam!

Misty Mountains

*I come down
from the misty mountain
I got lost
on the human highway
Take my head
refreshing fountain
Take my eyes
from what they've seen.
Take my head
and change my mind*

and lo’ the purple asters were waiting
coy, yet serene they beckoned

On this day, 17 June 1971, construction workers in New South Wales initiated a "green ban", refusing to build luxury houses over Kelly's Bush, the last open space in a suburb. Local women had been campaigning to save the park.

Despite a management threat to use scabs, the builders and residents won, and Kelly's Bush remains an open public reserve today.

A wave of green bans subsequently began which stopped billions of dollars of harmful development over the next four years.

This is a short history of these events: https://libcom.org/history/articles/kellys-bush-green-ban

Happy Father's Day To All The Dads Out There


My Dad-- circa late '70's or thereabouts. Doing what he loved best.

*A feller isn't thinkin' mean
out fishin'
His thoughts are mostly good an' clean,
out fishin'
He doesn't knock his fellow men,
Or harbor any grudges then.
A feller's at his finest when
out fishin'

He learns the beauties of a stream
out fishin'
An' he can wash his soul in air,
That isn't foul with selfish care
An' relish plain and simple fare,
out fishin'

A feller has no time fer hate
out fishin'
He isn't eager to be great
out fishin'.
He isn't thinkin' thoughts of self,
Or goods stacked high upon a shelf,
But he is always just himself,
out fishin'

A feller's glad to be a friend,
out fishin'
A helpin' hand he'll always lend,
out fishin'.
The brotherhood of rod an' line
An' sky

Slow & steady, that's the ZZ plant! But oh-so-wonderful and constant!

No diseases, pests and bad surprises. Only sturdy green stalks with soothing regular leaves.

What you you think of your own ZZ plant?

#patents on maths
Crazy. But not a joke. They also patent #nature itself now. #patent fundamentalists are a threat to human kind, try to own everything that's born and thought of.
 

Fertilizer plants emit 100 times more methane than reported -- ScienceDaily

Emissions of methane from the industrial sector have been vastly underestimated, researchers from Cornell University and Environmental Defense Fund have found.

Using a Google Street View car equipped with a high-precision methane sensor, the researchers discovered that methane emissions from ammonia fertilizer plants were 100 times higher than the fertilizer industry's self-reported estimate. They also were substantially higher than the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimate for all industrial processes in the United States.

*Now small fowls flew screaming over the yet yawning gulf;
a sullen white surf beat against its steep sides; then all collapsed,
and the great shroud of the sea rolled on as it rolled five thousand years ago.*

Imagine burring rocks like this for a new road....
The workers were upset when I was busing picking rocks like this ..
They told me.. "Oho, you are making craters, delaying our work ! "
To them it's a stone, yet to me it's a gem...
For you..
