It Is Not Storms.............It Is Not Aftermath...........It Is The Way We Behave...............The Way We "Treat", Interact, With One Another.............The Way We "Treat", Interact, With Nature........Classic Example--The Ant "Bed".............Try To Destroy One Without The Horror Of Poison.........Can't.........One Can Obliterate The Mound............Next Day............It's Back, Functioning Normally...............Its' Denizens Finished With Reconstruction(i.e.--Working Together Toward A Goal).......Nature Is Full Of Examples Like This.............We Should Follow Her Fine Example, And, Guidance

Over 118 Square Miles Of Louisiana Wetlands Have Been Lost Since Katrina And Rita..............(That Number Will Increase, No Doubt).............Our "Defense System" Is Fast Disappearing.......A System Which In The Near Future Will Protect Us Not Only From Storms, But, Most Importantly(And This IS The Greatest Problem Facing The State) Rising Sea Levels......Estimates Range From A Few Inches(EPA--So Irrelevant, Throw It Out) To Several Feet(7) With Consensus Appearing To Be Somewhere In The Middle By Centuries End........Of Course If Global Warming Gets To 5.4 Degrees Fahrenheit, Forget It!--Greenland Ice Sheet Melts Down, Resulting In 23 Additional Feet Of Sea Level Rise(Same For West Antartica).........Obvious That Wetlands Have To Be Restored And Allowed To Grow.....Only One Solution As This One Sees It--Many Levees Must Be Removed, Allowing Nutrient Rich Waters To Restore And Build Marshlands..............Sure, An Inconvenience For Many, Particularly Commercial Interest.............But...........If We Do Nothing But Talk And Concern Ourselves Exclusively With The Short Term(Levee Protection For This Hurricane Season), The Wetlands Will Continue To Diminish And Die With Much Of The Southern Part Of The State(New Orleans Included) Lost Forever

Why Do We Not Use Our Wealth Wisely?
For The Earth
For Its'(All) Inhabitants
For Our Own "Spirit"
Why Do We Not Foster The Idea That It Is The Right For All To Gather Into A Cohesive Whole And Prosper And Develop And Grow To Lofty Heights To Which We Should Aspire?

Close To A Year Now Since The Storm.............Still Cleaning Up, Clearing, Repairing Buildings And Many Other Inconveniences..............But That's O.K................The Art Hasn't Stopped(Never Did)...............The Music Still Flows..............The Water's And Inhabitants Therein(Ravaged Though They May Be) Still Flow At Backyard's Edge.............It Is life As It Should Be................With Nature

What Is Happening In Louisiana Now Is Rather Indicative Of Occurrences Globally............We Are At The Crossroads, Nexus, Of Our Tenure On This Planet(Keep Repeating Myself--Necessary Though)...........Will We Change?................Will We Produce Change?..........Will We Create?..................Will We Pursue A Logical And Natural Approach To Life On This Planet?..............Or, Do We Continue Into The Temporal Abyss Of Ultimate Exclusion?

The Wide Open Eyes And Mind Of The Child...........The "Wild One" Of Constant Wonder And Excitement..........The Feral One............The Child Of Nature.............The Recipient Of Its' Gifts.............Feral Expressionism My Term As Applied To The Production Of Those Gifts..............(Thought About "Neo Expressionism"--Like The Idea Of "Bad Art"--But That Term Is Just A Bit Too Inclusive).........Of Course Words Aren't That Necessary In Describing One's Work(S--"What You See Is What You See")........But They Are Desirable And Enjoyable Adjuncts To The Process................Like So Many Things In One's Life

Catalpa "Worms" Finally Showed Up, After Years Of Absence, On My Two Catalpa Trees The Other Day..............Of Course My Interest Were Beyond The Purely Scientific As They Make Great Catfish Bait(But That's Another Story)...........Have No Idea Why They Reappear After So Many Years(And Can't Seem To Find A Suitable Reason  Searching Elsewhere).......Sphinx Moth, From Which They Spring, Obviously Is Mobile, But How Mobile, How Far?(I Suspect Not Much As Many Trees On The River Never Have Caterpillars........Yearly Flooding?)..........So For Now Will Assume Their Pupae Remain Dormant In The Ground(From Which The Mother Moth Arises) Until Some Mechanism Triggers Their Emergence.......Once The Moth Lays Her Eggs On The Leaves, Two Weeks And Five Molts Later(The Final Molt Being The Pupae Stage) They Are Gone, Returned To The Ground, Leaving Oft Times A Leafless Tree(Which Rebounds Rapidly)............So Many Critters (Besides Me) Depend On These Simple Little Caterpillars............Birds Of Course.........Honey Bees Enjoy The Rich Sugars Which Are Released By The "Chewed" Leaves, Parasitic Wasps Lay Eggs Inside The Caterpillar, Insuring Their Continuance.......A Rather Myopic Way To View The Entire Planet........So Many Life Cycles Intertwined, Interconnected, Dependent Upon One Another...........Doesn't Take Much Effort To Extend That Globally............Each And Every Species(And Thing For That Matter) Is Connected In This Great Circle Of All........We Are Dependent On One Another............And That Must, Must Be Developed And Nourished If We Are To Continue As An Individual Species

A Chorus Of Barred Owls Heard Throughout The Swamp This Morning.................Each With Its' Own Distinct Voice(Dialect?)...........Each Calling To An Unseen Sun............Each Announcing Its' Place And Its' Space On This Earth.........As I

How Nice It Would Be To Listen To Chopin(And Many Others) And Not Have To Think About Wars And People Starving And Dying Of Numerous Diseases(Preventable) And Global Warming As Well As Dimming And Rising Termperatures As Well As Sea Levels And People Killing People And Greed And Corruption And Dishonesty And, And, And All Those Other Things Which Make Us So Very Human............We Had Such Marvelous Potential............Time Is Running Short For Us Now.............Perhaps The Last Opportunity For Us To Turn That "Had" Back Into "Have"...........Nature, Awareness, Care, Caring, Giving...............The Ascent Of Harmony, Resonance..........The Music Pure And Unfettered By Any Thought Outside Its' Self

Delighted To See Some Of My Friends Down River Weathered The Storm Quite Well.................Big Daddy, An 11-12 Foot Gator, (Used To Be "Big Mamma" Until I Discovered Him With Ken, Who Turned Out To Be A Hen, So She Was Renamed Kenoviere) And Kenoviere,  Just Recently "Doing Their Thing" A Couple Bends Down River From Here...........Couple Of Youngsters In The Area Too, Staying Out Of The Way.........Haven't Seen Godzilla Yet..............A Very Shy  Gator, Which Accounts For His 14-15 Foot Length(Not Too Fond Of Humans)...........Such Remarkable Creatures...........I Am Fortunate To Be A Part Of Their World
