I found a beehive!

Look for the bull's-eye behind the road sign.

I'd never have noticed without all I’ve learned about bees from my friend G. (and her great blog), so after the excitement the next thing I felt was a surge of gratitude for this particular friend.

I have no idea if the bees are violating the speed limit.

I’ve been relishing the loud and varied noise of birds throughout this gray, green day, and also feeling thankful for Rachel Carson, without whom this might have been a silent spring.

I hope we can save the bees.

It may be an illusion, but once again you could imagine that the bees might be arriving home in pairs, as I thought I’d observed in the Guggenheim’s Zen bee art movie.

Back to the landscape. It’s not all suburbia yet. There’s a cow pasture behind the road.

KC, In response to your post on Rachel Carson, Bees and Nature :

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

Industrial Society is destroying necessary things [Animals, Trees, Air, Water and Land] for making unnecessary things [consumer goods].

"Growth Rate" - "Economy Rate" - "GDP"

These are figures of "Ecocide".
These are figures of "crimes against Nature".
These are figures of "destruction of Ecosystems".
These are figures of "Insanity, Abnormality and Criminality".

The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature [Animals, Trees, Air, Water and Land].

Chief Seattle of the Indian Tribe had warned the destroyers of ecosystems way back in 1854 :

Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you realize that you cannot eat money.
