That’s all everything is, right?
Been going for walks in through the local pieces of nature lately, and it’s all pretty great. There’s a lot of interesting stuff to be seen, like cute little lizards scuttling away as soon as you see them. I always try to get as close a look as possible, see what they’re all about. You know, get to know the wildlife a little. As great as it is though, I think I’ll have a different perspective on it when I return from my adventures in Peru.
Thing is, the Netherlands is (are?) a small country. Our mountains are hills, our wildlife is life, and it’s all just a little on the small side compared to the rest of the world. Yet I can still look up at a tree and go “holy shit that thing’s fucking huge!” Imagine what my reaction will be when I look up at one of those ancient mega-trees in the Amazon. Those things are even bigger! And after an encounter with a crocodile or whatever, little bush-lizards won’t be nearly as neat as they used to be.
That’s what I think will happen, at least. But who knows, maybe I’ll get a new-found appreciation of the more tame things in nature.
