Day 22~ August 22nd~ Boracay


a show of force

All we need is to stand on a seashore watching a storm brew over the ocean to realize that when it comes to the distribution of force, nature has the upper hand. We could be shaken, blown away, flooded, drowned, or dehydrated at any moment with minimal effort on the planet’s part. And I do wonder seeing how we abuse its resources without regard, when it might just be too much for our blue planet and it decides to flick us away or smash us as we would a blood sucking mosquito. Wouldn’t you if you were a planet?

  1. Beautiful picture and good thoughts, Mimo >>> and being an ex-geologist I have a good feel for just what Earth / Nature can throw at us if it has a mind too – totally vast and uncontrollable force! Adrian

    • Adrian I am also an ex-geologist 🙂 I never practiced but that was my first college degree. Thank you for your comment

      • Oh that’s interesting, Mimo – doesn’t geology give a different perspective on things – landscape, our planet and so on? I was an enthusiastic geological collector – rocks, minerals, fossils – from my early boyhood on, and although other things have replaced those early interests, I’ve never lost sight of them – which is something I’m grateful for.
