Sweet Autumn

The chill is here and I am missing the summer... but Autumn is my favorite season. Such beautiful flame and frost blending summer and winter together. The sweet smell of falling leaves and pumpkin spice. It brings forth a tight longing in my chest, migratory restlessness or Zugunruhe as the Germans call it. I wish fruitlessly for flight, through the trees in their golden glory. The quaking aspens, true gold leaf adorning the shaking branches. Crunching over fallen leaves, sliding on pine needles. Oh the bitter sweet feeling of autumn. But I couldn't and wouldn't change it.

A letter to Humanity

Dearest world,

Sometimes I despair... When I think of the oceans, the forests, the swamps, the deserts.

I wonder if this disease we spread will ever be contained... If wisdom will ever rule our actions... if reason will prevail.

Why is it that we hurt ourselves and pretend it didn't happen... will humanity evolve? Will our species survive? Or will we take the known world with us?

First Post

I expect that this will not be a very consistent blog... or a very popular one. It is just a blog written by a human that knows how small we all are... infinitesimally small... and is set on learning as much as possible in a very short time.
