Wild Things in Spring

Albert Einstein once said,

“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or a hostile universe.” Is the world you live in hostile or friendly? How do you look at it? It’s up to you to decide. Every single day I make that decision. I wake up and ask myself: “Do I live in a good world or a bad world?”

Every Spring I wake up to the friendly natural world. I am not as confident about the foibles of humans. Every day I have to reassure myself that even homo sapiens are an intrinsic part of the natural universe.
