Spend time in nature? That sh*t can kill you.
I’m a Florida witch. We sometimes have a slightly more cautious take on our communing with nature. Not that we don’t like nature. It’s just that we respect nature because it can be very deadly.
So, the building where I work backs up to a bit of protected Florida wetland. Protected wetlands are very important, but working near one has some side effects. This little guy was slithering across the parking lot as I was walking in. That’s a cottonmouth. It can kill you. Or in this case - me - because you’re reading this on tumblr and I was about 5 feet from a cottonmouth before I saw him and went “oh, snake.” He continued on his way. Once he reached the landscaping, he was nearly impossible to see.
Nature - it really doesn’t care if you die. After all, everything has to die.
