"Plus cela change, plus cela reste la même chose…"

Quoted from Jaan Kaplinski's blog : Ummamuudu

describing how the end will come
with the nuclear holocaust. Suddenly
I felt very sure nothing such
will ever happen. There will be no big bang,
only some tiny ones perhaps. But surely
a long big whimper: Big powers
insulting one another, serious crises,
disarmament conferences in Geneva,
drug addicts in Washington, dissidents in Moscow,
hunger in Sahel, terrorism in the Middle East,
new cars, fashions and hits,
breakthroughs in computing and space technology,
more handicapped children and mentally disturbed people,
more revolutionary and ecological movements,
fewer trees, fewer birds and less time
to be aware of the high midsummer sky turning slowly
above you and around you and of the mild night breeze
touching gently your hair and stirring up
some strange feelings and childhood memories.

Nature in Us / by Jaan Kaplinski /

Once I wrote: In fact trees and shrubs are a part of us, they are simply at a greater distance from our body than hands or feet, so it is possible to think that they don't feel pain, that chopping away our branches and trunks doesn't cause us serious injury. But we cannot live without trees. The fewer trees there are, the less we live. In reality we are chopping up and cutting down parts from our own body, we are burning and poisoning ourselves. Instead of the forest new human beings can be born, but they are disabled people, people without branches, without roots, without trees, without Amazonia, without Borneo, without Ruwenzori. (Ice and Heather, in: Evening Brings Everything Back, Bloodaxe Books 2004) Nearly nothing to add to this. We are a part of Nature, Nature is a part of us. Makes no sense to discuss why we must protect it. As if we discuss whether we should protect our head, our teeth, our liver... Jaan Kaplinski in his blog Ummamuudu
