Rain Dances
    #1845835 - 08/24/03 06:11 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

As I was looking out at the brown grass and dying plants today and hoping it would rain soon, I started thinking about the rain dances that Native Americans used to do. I considered whether or not it was possible that they actually worked. After a while, I came to the conclusion that they probably did, though indirectly. The way that they respected and revered the earth and everything on it did help their crop grow better because they didn't fuck up the earth the way that we did. Around where I live, the yearly rain has been steadily decreasing lately. This can probably be at least partly attributed to the fact that everything has been paved over and plowed down, and the water no longer stays in the ground. It all runs off into the streams and rivers and eventually leaves the area. Since there isn't as much in the ground in the area, it doesn't evaporate into the air, and therefore, not as much rain. I think that the earth is quite more fucked up than the general public believes it to be. The only feasible solution I've been able to see actually working is the extinction of humans. We just love to mess this beautiful place up. I hope that someday humans live at peace with the earth again and give it more respect.

The water still gets back into the air, when it evaporates from lakes and oceans, but then it is more subject to where the wind wants to carry it.. the same water that was picked up in one area and then released again in that area is now being carried away to somewhere else and doesn't necessarily return..

Full respect to the Native Americans. Living as if everything is sacred and equal.. I can respect that! hehe

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
