What and Why

Can anyone tell me what I am doing hear on earth. Why I am here writing this at 5.24 in the morning, I listen to the waves softly reaching the sand once pebals now just grains worn over thousands of years. What’s my purpose of being here everyday making the same cup of tea saying hello and goodnight for 100+ years. Watching the same depressing news that’s on every channel, not knowing to believe it or not. Daily paper with articles of murder, hardship, pain and suffering with a little peice of happiness 2 inches square.

Are we here for a reason and if so what is it. Can you tell me in a few words what we were sent to or put on earth for. To breed with no control so we starve the world of clean air, contamination on a mass scale, killing all that’s beautiful. Why do we teach children about animal extinction, when at the same time the Hedgehog is in decline another animal my Grandchildren will talk about in stories or to be seen in a zoo.

Why do some people have everything, happiness and money, lifestyle and others just sit in poverty. Some no peace and others War killing and death as a daily occurrence. Some of us are intelligent others just can’t read or write.

Some are born blind,deaf, with face disfigurement. Others pretty beautiful, others with faces they have to hide from the normal everyday routine. Why is a child born we no legs or arms crippled from birth. Children born with Tumours and illnesses that they did not choose or their parents ask for.

Why can I sing and make wood into birds, play any instrument decorate my house, cook, clean and have the social skills manners a good heart, kindness love and be at peace one day then depressed another. Why does a person born at the same time in the same country with the same birth sign. Be a killer and person who gets pleasure from hurting men women and children. Why does he enjoy Torture when I just want to be nice to everyone.

Why do we drink water from a plastic bottle, container that was not here once, that polutes are lovely rivers killing creatures that only new crystal clear water to swim in. We used to just turn the tap on and drink here in England, now it’s filters gadgets reasons why you pay more every year for water but you can’t drink, scared by papers articles how it can harm your stomach.

What is life can someone explain why you were brought here to see the world change so much, hear people say I Won’t Miss it when I am gone. I hate the world we live in. What is the truth do we believe everything that is said.

Why do people turn into something when they get old not to the great happy lovely women she once was. From wealth living in a lovely family environment happiness to a home where they all stair into space, not knowing that they have turned into a person the family don’t recognize anymore.

Why do we speak different languages have different coloured skin, some living in jungles some driving electric cars not touching just speaking to it for a silent journey with no feeling of true driving anymore. Will it end up like a movie of the future Robots everywhere, no need for food just a pill to keep us going for days.

Will there still be Tribes in the Amazon trees as far as the eye can see. Or will it be just another wonder that the human race killed, destroyed to build more buildings. Once great tribes that lived of the plants and rivers, no Flu or colds no money making Drug organisation. Just trees and plants as medicine.

Why do I feel so happy but still wonder what is my purpose in life. I once thought that the dad was meant to pass down his knowledge to his children, skills and life experience to make their lives better.

Why does no one listen to people that have studied wildlife behaviour tell us there will be no more Gorillas or Polar Bear, Tiger or Elephant in 20+ years. Are are we so mixed up in daily technology that it doesn’t really matter as won’t help daily life to become so easy it’s making us into a Lazy human race, everything done by voice.

The curtains close, the lights dim the car parks itself. No more keys to the door just an App a camera knowing your every move welcomes you home opening the door when you look at it.

I will always wonder why I was sent here, born in 57 look like other men, be told I have just seen you Double. Was there a few made at the same time.

Will the world still exist in a thousand years, will there be any birds or animals left or just be an image you can see in the eye from a voice command.

The simple world gone forever a thing of the past, history a world that can’t be stopped from the inevitable.

Will I return for another chapter on earth 🌎 born normal, healthy, Rich, fully formed, have nothing bad happen to me. Or was it just 100 years of learning for nothing.

Why I can’t answer, will I don’t know.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
