Huck Finn Week – Day 2 – At Home With Trees

“THE sun was up so high when I waked that I judged it was after eight o’clock. I laid there in the grass and the cool shade thinking about things, and feeling rested and ruther comfortable and satisfied. I could see the sun out at one or two holes, but mostly it was big trees all about, and gloomy in there amongst them. There was freckled places on the ground where the light sifted down through the leaves, and the freckled places swapped about a little, showing there was a little breeze up there. A couple of squirrels set on a limb and jabbered at me very friendly. ” Huck Finn on Jackson’s Island

Snacking Gone Mad

Melbourne artist Eddy Burger knows my story.

This old friend of mine also knows a lot about moral and immoral forces which buffet us all.

In this drawing by Eddy (with words added by me), I see an image of how life giving purity can be vulnerable to monstrous cruelty .

I see what governments at their worst can do to individuals focussed on life and what life needs.

It doesnt have to be that way, but sadly sometimes it is.
