Before Sundown

On Saturday afternoon during the rain, just before sundown, a rainbow appeared and this beautiful scene.

A particularly sad event happened last week to a near neighbor. He became so depressed that he took his own life. I really feel the suicide rate needs to be looked at and acknowledged. I believe the theory is that to talk about suicide prompts others to copycat. In this little country area if copycats occurred on top of the current rate, none would remain.

The news is a disaster area with, recession, politicians borrowing a mates ute...Get a grip. It is not that bad, perhaps can not buy a new fridge and will have to modify our traveling habits in the near future and modify our power use. Although I read in a recent newspaper article the instillation of air conditioners has gotten out of control. What happened to cutting back on power usage. Journalists have no backbone and would prefer to report if Angelina is talking to Brad. Do I care, seems as most of the world does. Although to be perfectly honest I think Brad is easy on the eye.

Amongst all this I know I am so lucky to see what I see each day and do acknowledge that most of the world is trying to survive, hunger, oppression and here we are looking at a society with so much with a mental disease of self inflicted ending of one's life. I wonder if chemical warfare is at work here. Our bodies are polluted with so much "have" that it ceases to produce the endorphins that make us happy. Our family has a history of "black dog", on my off days I do not take drugs I interact with nature, gallop my horse through the bush or talk to the birds. Works for me and I do not know about the rest of the human race but I am convinced that a little dirt and leaves between the toes, and talk to the animals is the answer. I know there is more important things out there, i.e. a butcher bird trying to get enough for her babies. She has a purpose and intent and gaiety that can be appreciated.
