northern adventures

For those of you from Canada, more specifically Ontario, I would like to do an homage of the wild north. I love my province, especially northern Ontario, because it's beautiful, and remote, and filled with life; not the human kind, necessarily, but the other kind, birds, and beavers, and bears, though unbelievably the fucking government allows "sport" hunting, well, let's call it what it is, shall we, murder, of mother bears, any bears. It's horrific.

I was lucky enough to see one, at a dump, sadly, but, all the same it was an amazing experience to behold! S/he was a shy, black bear, nibbling trash, and when our car pulled up, she quickly ducked behind the hill and back into the forest s/he went.

This is the photo we got, below.

Notice, too, what we do to the earth, and how disgusting we are with our throw away culture. All the bags of plastic, the couches was beyond grotesque to see; sad and depressing, more like.

Just one little gem. Ah, I love this park,

    You are so right. It disgusts me what we humans do to the world around us.
    I personally blame Western society's mindset of religious righteousness that states we have domain and superiority to do whatever we wish to whomever we wish, whenever we wish.
    In the deepest place in my heart there lives a fear that the world I want to live in is a fairytale. A place where all life is respected and cherished, not just the lifeforms that fit someone's political/ religious/sexist agenda.
