Nature's Place

Civilized Ant

Travelling along an old rotting tree that had fallen in the forest, these gentle silver-backed ants. To get them to slow down I gave them a drink. They loved it and also took time to groom themselves, time out from the incessant but unhurried search for food to survive – among their other daily doings.

It’s not all work, to live as long as possible without a wasted effort, just to survive. The simple pleasure of a walk in the woods, or a drink of water without consideration of significance or consequence – real civilization.

The beast, with always an eye on a different moment to now, brought home to the being of sense from the frenzy of mind.

These ants know something, even if they don’t know they know it.

Relaxed is the way to enjoy the simple life.
