Expect the Unexpected

 

Sculpture by Addé 2017

 

Open your eyes to the notion that the world may be more filled
with feelings than most people realize.

Be kind to nature as, fundamentally, nature is kind to you
and you are part of it, nevertheless…

 

 

This was inspired by a true story of an English lady, who found, in her well-kept garden, a female bumblebee crawling on the ground.

She took her in her hands and found the poor creature was wingless.

She could not fly at all, being apterous (the bumblebee, not the lady, silly you) so she took her home, fed her, and built her a cozy home.

To her astonishment (the lady’s, not the bumblebee, silly you) some sort of friendship grew up and, obviously, the bumblebee enjoyed their bond and led a happy life, beyond her life expectancy.

This is how and why, fellow humans, we must cherish and respect life, even the tiniest ones, as we are not only sharing the planet, yet, they existed long before us and are our predecessors.

A wee shrew succeeded in surviving the cataclysm that ended the dinosaurs’ reign, yet kept in mind the terror they inspired her.

This is, if you believe in a partial transmission of the memory through DNA, the reason, we (re)created the mythical dragon, in memory of an absolute terror.

Last word before I show myself out : Konrad Lorenz, biologist, zoologist, and Nobel prize, said, in the times it was believed in a missing link (between the apes and mankind) : « I found it! It’s us! »

    boy, that’s a great story about the bumblebee — imagine becoming friends with such a thing?

      I believe, given the proper conditions, one can befriend any life form.

    Cheers to meaningful friendships…may we all have one especially in times of need!

      Sadly, there is more distress than soothing help.
