Insignificance —

It doesn’t take an earthquake, or a tsunami, or a tornado to show the insignificance of human beings in the natural world. Here, in a “normal” setting in Shimane Prefecture, Japan, is a gorge called by a picturesque name, “Even the Devil Was Afraid.” (Sorry, I can’t remember it in Japanese.)

Can you spot the three human beings venturing where demons fear to tread?

    I don’t know that we’re any less significant than any other life form but we surely are not as important as we make ourselves out to be…

      I guess that’s clear when, for instance, we encounter a bear. (Which we did in the Berkshires, and I know you have as well; and would you believe, here in Northampton in our little “village,” there’s a bear and her three cubs as well that wander at will.THEIR will.)

    Bears there? Gosh! It’s comforting to me that as yet we humans have not taken over the world completely 🙂
