We have a stray Hoopoe visiting Jersey! Such an exotic bird so far north from it's usual habitat. Perhaps it is just the first of many more? A welcome visitor!
The other thought that crossed my mind is thank God so far the Planet has been pretty well Bombproof.
Please don't think I am being sick here, as I just think over the last 150 years weapons technology has mushroomed like a neuclear cloud, and we have been intent on blowing each other up.
Mother Earth has had to bear all these scars too. She has to try to heal herself from radiation sickness, deforrestation, huge and gaping open mines, fracking, oil and gas drilling, mining. So many ways that we are using irreplacable resources.
I feel heavy hearted for the damage we have done. I hope during the next few years we can all have a real desire to put right all the damage we have done. even if that just means going out with a bag and cleaning up beaches and countryside that other people have left litter on.
We get plastics washing up on our beaches from America that are thirty and forty years old. We go out and pick it all up.
The days are longer. The weather is warmer. The sun has been shining, and we played great petanque today.
My Husband is still so well, the dog may have toothache again, but I am taking her to the Vet tomorrow, and I am thankful that I can afford to.
I am so mindful of the refugee crisis. It is being badly dealt with by politicians. How these people need to be treated better than this. We are all Human.
Peace be with you, may the blessing of God rest on you and prosper you.
