  1. Eh… I looked it up and found: ” Doth not nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?”

    Eh. No. Nature doth not teach me that.

    Cracking photo though.

    You must have been pleased with that quote about long hair, Andrew-Yul? ;-)

    What is the matter with everyone these days (not you Claude)?

    Everyone seems to be focusing on the written word rather than what is!

        When the comments thread got a bit out of hand I thought of you ;-)

        I knew exactly what you would be thinking :-)

  5. “What is the matter with everyone these days (not you Claude)?”

    Oh, that would be me then?

    Utter despair at the species I belong to, from the everyday trivial to the profound. Utter despair. The nonsense they believe in. The falsehoods that drive them on… I was thinking of giving online engagement with them a complete rest, perhaps a permanent rest. Perhaps I should have started that earlier this evening. Anyway, these may be my final foolish words, as a blog commenter if not a blogger. Yes, I think they will be. Farewell and Amen.

      What I meant is that here I am thinking about nature, its beauty its cycles etc Nothing more, nothing less. As Ginnie says below, Mother nature.

      Then in other places I am talking about the countryside and I am supposedly being political…

    Without further ado…YES, Mother Nature teaches us everything we need to know, regardless of what anyone else says! :)
