It's amazing to me the things we deal with on a daily basis that some would say borders on insanity.
Getting away from the TV, Cell phones, traffic, over-population, constant bombardment from ads, the daily grind and the general frustrations of the
big city for just a week makes you realize that it doesn't have to be that way.
There's a ranch I visit every year just north of the Big Bend Nat'l park. None of the distractions I listed above are present, it's just you and
vast stretches of virgin desert. Most would probably loose it because it's so quiet. The area is a "no-fly" zone as well so except for the
occasional border patrol helicopter you don't see anything in the sky except for buzzards and hawks.
When I return home, a ten hour drive, it seems like I don't belong there anymore. The feeling that I should be back in the desert is overwhelming. I
look around at all the people, congestion and clutter and it disgusts me.
We humans (most of us) have seriously lost touch with our primal nature. We have forgotten the divinity of the natural world and wage war against it.
Our constant battle against nature has become our mythos. We wage war on everything, drugs, poverty, terror, etc... We are probably the only species
on the planet that seeks to eliminate any and all competition for resources, when we should be striving to live in harmony with nature.
Our current mythos and the lifestyle it seeks to perpetuate is unsustainable... it will be our death knell.
That's why we're all insane....
