approaching to me,
feeling of something
away from me..
An the feeling of something sharing.. or exchanging..
in the meantime.
Life is a collection of debris from those of comes & goes..
with psychological scars
left as just chunks of memories..
.. bulky set of weighted connections among the activated neurons..
though we learn a lot from the garbages..
Now I have no chance in sitting at the entrance steps with the door wide open in the train in Korea, Canada or other developed countries.
But I have a good memory of doing exactly same thing the men at the picture were doing when I was in school in early 1980..
We talked about our girl friends, mostly political situations, and what our life would like to be over the beers, and sang lots of songs hoping for better future and condemning political reality.. on the train running fast.. with the door wide open.. with all the swirling wind rushing onto our faces..
We were so happy together on the rail..
listening and feeling the constant rythm of the running steel horse..
So you might imagine how much I like this train with all the doors wide open for me..
I payed nearly twice more fare for Sleeper Class with Air Conditioning but I didn't actually needed the luxury(relatively speaking). Second class sitting with lowest wage should be mine..
There is no festival without variety of foods
as the word carnival derived from the meaning of meat-eating, carnivorous..
Taste of the Danforth is the Food Festival.. eating, drinking and eating again..
I see more excitement and dynamics of people in the festival ..
The dishes were all excellent and the amicable atmosphere was superb.
I just went down from my hotel for walk to downtown area with Casino complex.
And I found a small park full of high tropical trees and some benches.
There was a big shadow formed by the abundant leaves of the giant trees.
All of a sudden I found some small things are moving on the ground and I kneeled down to have a detail look. It was really suprising to see the moving small leaves in row. And soon I remembered the scenes I watched on Discovery or National Geographic channel.
Those were the ants carrying leaves. Green and yellow leaves were carried by the amazing creatures dilligently. They were so fast in moving that I couldn't have my camera focus on them well. Surely because I was watching them they were nervous and getting faster and faster in moving which made me troublesome to take good pictures. However I was so excited to see them moving that I had no chance of complaining.. ^,^
Discovery Channel 등에서 보던 장면이 내 발아래서 펼쳐졌다.
작은 나뭇잎들과 꽃잎들이 뒤뚱 뒤뚱 열지어
한 방향으로 움직이고 있었던 것이다.
무릎을 굽혀 살펴 보니 열대의 붉은 개미들이
부지런히 잎사귀들을 나르고 있었다.
무겁기도 하겠거니와 종이같은 세워진 잎사귀들을 나르것이
결코 쉽지 않을텐데 놓지지도 않고 어찌나 빠르게 지나가던지
아무리 셔터를 눌러대도 촛점이 제대로 맞지가 않았다..
베르베르는 '개미' 를 통해 말했다
외계인들이 지구에서 종을 선택한다면
인간보다는 개미를 택할것 같다고..
그는 지구를 사실상 점령하고 있는 동물은 인간이 아니라 개미라고 단언한다.
이들의 조직력, 조직을 위해 기꺼이 죽을 수 있는 희생 정신
철저한 역할 분담, 지극히 간단하고 즉각적인 의사 소통 체계,
생존을 위한 종족간의 연합,
지극히 많은 개체수...등등으로 하여
인간보다 훨씬 더 오랜 동안 지구 곳곳의 혹독한 기후에도 아랑곳 없이
계속해서 번성하고 있는 것이다.
