Back into the crazy world

I am catching up with posting online my articles.

In the last 2 weeks I have been working quite intensely and got to the point when my body was feeling tired and weak. I know the consequences of what would happen to me if I continued to work and so I decided to go to the mountains ( nature ) to get some rest. It was really cool and I enjoyed the peacefulness of the nature very much. I was even considering to stay their overnight but unfortunately I got hungry and I had to do some work on the computer at home and thus I drove my car back.

On the way home I stopped in the restaurant to have something to eat. I sat down at the table and I ordered the food. Then I started to look around and observe the people. My attention got drawn to the woman who was ordering some alcoholic drinks even though she was already quite drunk.

And then I had the famous thought "WTF".

I know from talking to other people that they are actually defining having alcoholic drinks among friends as "fun". But then if I look at my trip into the mountains and being in the nature I could not call it as fun anymore because it would not be fair. So I should actually call it ecstasy. And it was an ecstasy actually. No drugs... no alcohol... no other substances... just me and the breath... so much fun and joy.

Anyway... I realized that we ( humanity ) are really lost. We live in the cities in separation from the nature and then we don't appreciate it at all. And we don't even give a fuck if somebody pollutes the forests and rivers. We don't give a fuck if somebody kills the animals etc. We are so lost.

What is the solution ?

The best thing would be to take people away from cities and get them to live in the nature for a period of time ( at least few weeks ) because then after coming back we would be able to see the craziness of our lives in the cities and hopefully change it.
