A Certain Logic

September 11, 2017

Churchill, Manitoba: August, 2015


The careful juxtaposition of the picnic table and sign must have required a very special sort of thinking. You are in danger if you walk in this area, but yes, it would be just fine to have a picnic. Please don’t forget to bring sardines for the bears. Polar bears like sardines.

    Lots of sardines!

    Which reminds me about the Anthropocene from a much earlier post. A geological epoch? Let’s hope there is some trace left for the future after several million years and several glacial cycles and all the other long term effects of time and sea changes. I suppose it has a lot to do with the human need to be remembered and hope there is some around to do that; and that there will be sardines.

      Thank you for your comment. We can hope there are still humans and sardines; we seem to be doing our best to drive both to extinction, I fear.

    Wonderful as always to have a Churchill scene Graham…. Sardines indeed! I bet they could smell them a mile away, and that’s no exaggeration. I once witnessed a bear, skillfully and carefully, cradle a large mayonnaise bottle (at the old dump area) in its big clawed paws and insert its tongue to lick up the meagre remains inside. That being stated, people should NEVER feed them. Thanks again for your pictures and much peace to you again.

      Steve, many thanks. And yes, never feed the bears!
