#169 / Signs Of The Times

This sign, I am told, was posted along the beach at a coastal hotel in Turkey, some years ago. Who knows what that sign was really supposed to mean? 

Whatever the occasion that resulted in the posting of that sign, it does strike me that there is something profoundly true about the observation that while we all wish to protect the environment (including bird habitat, of course), it is our passing, "restless" nature that results in our failure to do that. 

If we would just live inside the natural environment as we find it, instead of trying, always, with restless energy, to make a few "improvements," to do a bit of "development," we would never have to apologize.
