Happy Nature

Mel Gibson in movie with the crop circles...Signs...whole thing takes place in an old house, reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode...though this was a crueler story...again, like the fellow in JayLo as police officer movie, where he lost wife in crash, here Gibson has lost wife in crash too, and lost God, and the aliens show up, mean and cruel as the car wreck, and...well...I wont give away the tale!

Alias back to back to back, but ones I've seen so flipped to Letterman, and Ferguson should be on soon.

Nature suffers all the vicissitudes we do, and is regarded as a menace to us by some, which is the take I make from alien movies that depict cruel aliens. I think these films are overlayed on fears of Nature.

There was a family movie about a vacationing family finding Bigfoot and taking him home with them. As the story unfolds their fears lessen, until they befriend Bigfoot...neat movie.

Oh, but these are tough notions to depict, and the stuff of many stories.

Nature is happy I think, and there is Muir quote hereabouts that I'll snag tomorrow that expresses how Nature always heals.

Found it, see John Muir Wikiquote for more...


Nature is always lovely, invincible, glad, whatever is done and suffered by her creatures. All scars she heals, whether in rocks or water or sky or hearts.
