Bikers’ paradise


Those of you who know a little more about the world than just what happens in their neighborhood would have heard of the late Prof. Wangari Maathai and her efforts in conjunction with the Greenbelt movement to save Karura Forest.

The forest, as I discovered yesterday is a bikers paradise.

Happy Sunday everyone

            In other unrelated news, I find your knowledge of the by bowl to be so vast, how did you remain a christian for so long? I am thinking with all that knowledge of the history and circumstances in which the damn book was authored you’d have left eons ago

            Mak, that is why, the moment I was prepared to actually consider the possibility I had feared to ever consider before, that it might all be false, it was like a break of a dam wall. All those issues of cognitive Dissonance came flooding through and made the breach so large.

            What I have found is that belief is based on emotion not logic. That is why at moments of emotional weakness, even folk like me can be sort of drawn back into religious thinking. Then once ones emotions are back in check you realise how all the evidence points to it being false. I think Violet has had similar experiences.

    Wangari Maathai was such a hero. What a woman. It’s from her that I learned that if you keep cutting down the deeply rooted forest trees, you will not only create desesertification because there are no roots to hold the soil, but the roots of these big trees break into deepdown aquifers, opening up streams that would not otherwise be there. All of which is to say, the world needs trees. Lovely post.

    Hi Mak! Love the shots of the scenery – what a gorgeous waterfall!
    At home we use the expression, “Trees are the lungs of the earth”. WM sounds like a wise woman. 🙂
