Spring. Rebirth. All green and bright blossoms, leaves and green shoots.
Not down here in the swamp. I made this picture on the first official day of spring. Those leaves look like the arrival of fall. You know. Fall colors and all. But nope. These are fairly fresh leaves. Red leaves. Orange leaves. Yellow leaves.
What do I know?
It’s spring. I know it’s spring. The calendar says it’s spring. The rest of nature looks like spring. But, not this little tree.
We all know one thing. Despite how humans try to restrain her, shape her, or move her, nature seeks stasis. She does what she wants.
What do you think climate change is about? Humans are polluting and destroying the planet. Nature. Climate change is about rebalance the earth back to where it should be. Nature doesn’t care if humans are involved. We are an irritant to her. A temporary irritant. She’ll destroy us. Or, banish us to a different planet. She doesn’t care.
Think about that. Think about that when climate change deniers spout their nonsense. It’s happened before. It could happen again.
The picture. See it. Photograph it. Easy stuff. Except for the seeing it part.
