Consequences 1: Burt on a Friday

winter scene

A new year has begun – so let’s tweak the Friday quotes – to spice it up in 2016 let’s play the old game of consequences, or whatever you call it over the Ocean?!

Each Friday quote should link…and off we go – I’ll begin!

(If you want to join in, just add one in a comment, and I will pick it up and carry on from there…)

‘…all that happens leaves its traces upon the earth by nightfall…’

BLOG OF JULY

Safety!

When I was tagging this blog, I realised the tags represent some of the themes in TOXICS, and its sequel, OCEANS.

Adventure – Alternative worlds – Life – Lovers of mystical worlds – Nature – Fantasy for children – Ecofiction – Felicity and Reuben – Conservation –

I joined the PDSA at a very young age – illicitly using my pocket money – and my bemused mother would pass me my membership envelopes from the small animal care organisation, trying to understand her strange child!  IMG_0296

I have continued, by adopting animals, and educating my children. We have supported a variety of wildlife. Adopted through three conservation establishments, and adored by my children. Although my human children have all but left the nest, their sister, Sonje, is still protected, and learning to survive in the wild, a step at a time.

Wildlife conservation, and therefore the protection of their habitat, and then by definition our ecosystems, is, I accept, an incredibly difficult balance, but the survival of humans must share itself with the survival of animals, and our global habitat! How can we not care to support that aim, in whatever way we can?

Only a very stupid creature would destroy its very life-source, wouldn’t it?

In Toxics and Oceans, the Old World is threatened by ignorance.

I have a magnet on my fridge that says to me ‘ Relax – all the worries of the world are not yours to bear.’ No, we can’t solve the world, only something greater than us could do that. But one man or woman with a dream can change many things. For us, and for our wildlife.

Have a lovely July.

Friday fribble!

Kestrel

And the answer to last week’s question? Fuliginous?

Well, it means dingy, opaque, foggy. A bit like my head this week!

This week’s is shorter. Fribble.

Any guesses?

Meanwhile – it’s Friday!!! And that means the obligatory quote:

For my birthday week, I shall repeat a quote just because I like it.

It’s not the most philosophical – or is it? ;)

‘Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!’

Maintaining a blog is a commitment. Do you agree?

And yet there are thousands and thousands of bloggers tapping away each day, and night.

The huge and rich variety of their output is truly amazing.

Imagine what could be achieved if everyone could meet at the same time, and amalgamate their thoughts – truly a book of all time would be born!

Informative, amusing, inspiring, encouraging, instructive, loving, supportive, disturbing, loving and visually exciting.

As we stand on the threshold of a New Year – I take this opportunity to raise a cheer to the blogging community – long may it continue!
