A little on Nature

Thousands of sardies found dead just a few blocks from my house. The theroy is that some how a tide wave pushed all those fishes to a really compacted areas in which water levels were low and kill the fish due to the lack of oxygen on the low levels of waters. I just could not believe this, I actually when down there and by God was it true. Thousands of sardines floating dead not only on the superficial lever but on deep levels as well. It was really sad seeing the poor fishes flapping around. They fish were making this "shhzzzz" noise as if they were being fried on a pan.
By a conisidence we were discussing, The Perfect Storm, a novel based on a true story in which a fishing boat sinks on the Great Banks of the Atlantic Ocean due to a massive storm. From these expirences I  just can help but wonder how vulnerble I am to nature. The human race consider itself to be well advance and most of them think they have conquer nature. In reality nature can crush us like a bug. Everything can kill us. I live in California and we are for sure due for the "big one." In the Midwest you have tornadoes, and on the East people are always concern of hurricanes. Hawaii is cursed with tsunamis. Nature is alive.Animals are Nature. Humans are animals. So humans are nature. Lets stop thinking as if we are superior to nature because we are not, and we won't realize this until something tragic happens to us. In fact we will never dominate nature, because we simply are a part of nature.

  1. I think the best thing to do is not to dwell on it. Like you said, people are nature as is everything that wants to kill us in some manner or another. To be afraid of it is to not allow yourself to live.

  4. I agree with The Game Story Guy. We protect and prevent the best we can. No reason to dwell otherwise.

  7. That's sad, but remember, Mother Nature and the Earth has been surviving for billions of year, and it will continue to.

  10. Reminds me of all those black birds dropping dead down in the southern U.S.
    It creeps me out, and even though I've always thought it was a load of bull, it makes me worry about 2012

  15. Good post, and it's sad to see all of those fish die for nothing.

    Nature reminds us everyday of how easily disposable we really are. :/
