Or rather…

Our Mother who art our beloved earth…Happy Mothers day.

I recently learned about some of Mother Natures amazing creatures via a very entertaining series called: Absurd Planet:

Highly recommended!

I am in awe of some of the amazing tricks these creatures have to be able to survive in very interesting conditions, which made me think about a character in a Roald Dahl book….

 

“I thought up secret plans and clever tricks” said the crocodile in the story: The  enormous crocodile by Roald Dahl.

“There is a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out

But I’m too tough for him

I say, stay in there

I’m not going to let anybody see you

There is a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out…”

Lost and the “Secret of Life”

detail “Lost”

As you can guess, I feel a bit lost right now. I’m also at a loss for words.

detail “Lost”

So I use or am inspired by words that jump out of a screen. These words were inspired by a Nintendo end game screen message,

but I feel it is also applicable to the world we are living in.
