Nature is often full of adventures and surprises.
This morning a cat sits expectantly for treats. I am clumsy and a rain shower of treats hits the cat, which flees. I take a few treats in hand to restore my relationship with the fearful cat, I walk into a spiderweb I did not see; the upset spider is hanging from my face. The cat will not touch the treats. Sometimes my interactions with nature and animals goes badly wrong.
When I go camping, the problem at this moment is slugs and snails. In the darkness I have to check for the slimy creatures in case they have invaded my tent, it is something I dislike sharing my sleeping bag with a slug.
As humanity expands, the wild lands of nature become smaller, so nature and humanity come face to face. Humanity needs a new understanding of respect and harmony in a world where city and wild nature overlap. Three stories in the media today highlights the problems of humanity and nature colliding. You think it an ordinary day, you go to work and find a wild elk looking at you in the corridor. A normal day fetching water, you end in a 30 minute battle fending off a hungry leopard with a spade. Your mother-in-law is coming to stay, you enter the spare room to prepare the bed, a horror story greets you when you find 5000 wasps have made a claim to the bed as their nest.
One thing I am certain of is that in nature nothing is ever dull.
