Nature is Back, and She has a lot to Say!


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. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜…

It might be not like in California for sure, but might be a dream, like California Dreamin’. πŸ€—

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!

  1. My garden has been covered in a beautiful white snow blanket for a week now! It was lovely for two or three days but believe me living at the bottom of a hill is no fun with snow. I agree with you about snow being scarce because the last time it snowed where I live was seven years ago! So always lovely to see but I’m always hoping it’ll melt in a few days.

    Oh, what lovely photos Aladin! It’s good to see you out and about in your local snowy woodlands. Especially the sunshine in snow photos. Beautiful Mother Nature in action! Well enjoy the snow while it lasts, tis a wonder indeed. Time to build a socially distanced snowmanβ›„β›„ or two!

    I haven’t heard of the film you mentioned but you’ve now piqued my interest so I’ll have a look around online to find out more about it. Whatever you’re doing this weekend enjoy! Love and light, Deborah.

    • Thank you heartily as always buddy, for your kind comment. I know what you mean, and I have over-enough of that sort! Since last Sunday, I am out to shovel snow twice a day. And also, as I had to work on Thursday, the Driving ratio on the slippery roads was exciting! It will be nice now to melt away. πŸ€žπŸ˜‰
      The movie is worth to watch, though it might take a long time (two hours), and I don’t know if it synchronized in English. Have a wonderful weekend, and be safe. πŸ’–πŸ˜˜

  2. I loved this post, Aladin. ! This last time I saw snow in Florida was in the 1980’s. The flakes lasted for a couple of hours and were gone by morning.

    I agree with you about how humans seem to be separating from nature, including our own instinctual natures. I worry about what we will become if this continues. We are nature too, but we tend to think we’re above it all. Maybe that’s what all the recent chaos is about: to humble us a little bit and wake us up to what we’re doing to ourselves and the planet!

    Thank you for this!

    I love seeing the snow in your world. The Mamas and Papas were popular when I was in college, but I liked the Rolling Stones and a few others better. I don’t know the movie “Dersu Uzala,” but I wouldn’t miss an opportunity to hug a tree–so I’m one of those back-to-nature crazies. We’ve had lots of snow and I notice friends get upset when they can’t get to a store or use their car whereas I get upset if my snowshoe trail fills and I can’t get to the forest. I’m on my way to strap on the snowshoes and pack the trail so I can find it after tonight’s snow. I hope you have lots of warm clothes for the new European weather.
