Back to Nature in 80 Years

80yearsAfter_8126
What looks like a wild forest accommodated a little homestead less than 80 years ago. The rock in the lower center of the picture was the cornerstone of a house. The tree behind it grows in what could have been a kitchen. At least three generations grew up here. A small field provided their daily bread and vegetables grew like an extension to the house. Wild berries and mushrooms along with deer and fish supplemented their diet.
A few kilometers from here 100 000 people now live in a city. Should they disappear it would take the forest less than 6000 years to bury all traces of their existence, less than a second on nature’s clock.
Tick-tock, tick-tock.
