I haven't written for some little while.However, I have been thinking. Has anybody else seen the similarities in the mythological story of King Midas and the BP oil flood into the ocean? It struck me almost immediately. The whole sorry saga has gone from the Eureka moment to total saturation if something isn't done about it. (Or on another level, but equally iconic, remember Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice in Fantasia.)We (the human race) should be so careful when 'tampering' with nature and its natural inbuilt balance whilst enjoying all of the wonderful benefits offered to us in such plenty, not to go 'over the top'.

I am also put in mind of the wonderful cards with words of wisdom written on them that you see in charity shops and I quote (maybe not exactly accurately here but you will get the idea).
' When the last leaf has fallen off the trees. When the last blade of grass has died.When the last fish has died when the last river is totally polluted.Then, will man realise that you can't eat money'.
How daunting and how true!
