Yesterdays, Once There Were Fireflies
When I was young, our surroundings consist of green bushes and small farms. There were sparrows and skylarks flying in the air. Butterflies, dragonflies, fireflies...we enjoyed catching fish along the creek, too.
We played and enjoyed especially during spring and summer vacations.
Today, the places were leveled and tall housing complexes are built. We no longer see any sights we enjoyed when we were young.
For the memories of golden age, some schoolteachers and businessmen are trying to culture them in their backyards to show our youngsters our goody golden days to minimize this polluted and civilized world.
Also, I can remember that there were fewer diseases during those golden times. As I mentioned in my old article, there were only 404 kinds of diseases in the ancient time in Japan. Today, complex and grave diseases are surfacing every day.
Every one of us has to think about it. Even I joined in studying environmental solutions to help myself as well as the world.
Don't you know that eco solutions can reduce diseases and make you healthy? How about planting trees and vegetables around your backyard gardens? To those who have no gardens, prepare container gardens or flowerpots in your room or doorways where you can plant simple vegetables or flowers.
Plants absorb air pollution and produce oxygen for you. Aside from it, it removes your stress as well as the origin of world diseases, negative energy. Living in such environment is just like having the PYRO-ENERGEN machine with you. Oh, yes, since two decades ago, I have planted hundreds of trees. In fact, my family does not produce any wastes at all. What you consider as wastes are composted or converted to useful materials.
Today, we can see several numbers of birds in my backyard garden, and amazingly fireflies, butterflies, and dragonflies, including neighbors who keep coming back to see the beautiful environment. By seeing them, we are all fine and healthy.
One more thing I want to emphasize is that all of us could live in happy and healthy condition if we return to the way what our old folks enjoyed. Today, all our servants working in my house get healthier than before.
