It might be not a phenomenal issue to get so much snow. I know there are many countries in which snowing every winter a great deal, and have eminently cold weather; like Canada, as I’ve heard it goes to ca. -45 degrees Celsius. But for us in Europe, It became rarer in the last decades and even worse in the latest years as it was mostly rainy and stormy. But this year it seems that nature finds her way back to her old manner (because of Corona?). For example, a winter as you would expect, with all the trimmings and with its beauty for sure.
The weather has become fickle. We notice it whenever we look out of the window; it is running somehow crazy. There is no doubt that the climate is changing.
Of course, I don’t want to discuss the scientific reasons; why is it so, or who is guilty. I only do believe in this changing. As we can see in the History of Earth and Meteorology, these changes have been happening since the Earth exists and it is a fact!
And another fact is that I believe we humans are separating us farther away from mother nature. In the beginning, we weren’t so, it may be caused by our progress in technology, (I don’t want to use the word; “Civilization” because,to be civilized means to me, being human intelligent, and not the sort of artificial.) to make a more artificial life for humans; who mostly are the laziest and the most comfortable creatures! I do my best not to belong to that sort, here is the proof; another walk into the snowy cold but the hearty warm beauty. 😉😅
It might be not like in California for sure, but might be a dream, like California Dreamin’. 🤗
Long ago, I have seen a movie named Dersu Uzala. I don’t know if you have seen it too. A story of a man, a human who belonged to nature, or he was an ingredient of nature. it’s a calm narrative of life, with its high and low into the end. Let’s read the story:
The film is based on the 1923 memoir Dersu Uzala (which was named after the native trapper) by Russian explorer Vladimir Arsenyev, about his exploration of the Sikhote-Alin region of the Russian Far East over the course of multiple expeditions in the early 20th century. It shot almost entirely outdoors in the Russian Far East wilderness; the film explores the theme of a native of the forests, who is fully integrated into his environment, leading a style of life that will inevitably be destroyed by the advance of civilization. It is also about the growth of respect and deep friendship between two men of profoundly different backgrounds, and about the difficulty of coping with the loss of strength and ability that comes with old age. Dersu Uzala, from 1975 by Akira Kurosawa http://Akira Kurosawa http://Dersu Uzala (1975 film) – Wikipedia
To be such a person like Dersu Uzala means to observe more our environment, more listen to nature, the wind, the trees, the birds, open-mindedly.
To put it bluntly, I am not a freaky vegan or someone who wherever he sees a tree, wants to hug it. I always try to use everything more naturally than using machines and keep my mind creative. I think if we don’t exaggerate, life will be more effortless and make much more fun. Anyway, we can just be waiting and look forward to what will happen next!
