... Probably caused by DC's bonfire of sanity and liberty...Apologies, couldn't resist. We need to enjoy beauty whenever and wherever we find it.
SF,DC's bonfire of sanity and liberty -- no doubt.
SF - but that still hits a nerve, it's so true.Lovely photo, AOW. My camera does same, so I can imagine the scene.
We're only here for a little stay.Don't worry. Don't hurry,And be sure to stop And smell the flowers along the way.~ AnonymousAnd you, AOW, have done just that with your camera amidst all the turmoil, rage, pain, illness, incredible stupidity and anxiety.Thank you for reminding us what's truly important.
FT,I am indeed trying to mind people of what's truly important. Most people don't even want to look at something pretty. It's election season.
"Miracle Fair" by Wislawa SzymborskaThe commonplace miracle:that so many common miracles take place.The usual miracle:invisible dogs barkingin the dead of night.One of many miracles:a small and airy cloudis able to upstage the massive moon.Several miracles in onean alder is reflected in the waterand is reversed from left to rightand grows from crown to rootand never hits bottomthough the water isn't deep.A run-of-the-mill miracle:winds mild to moderateturning gusty in storms.A miracle in the first place:cows will be cows.Next but not least:just this cherry orchardfrom just this cherry pit.A miracle minus top hat and tails:fluttering white doves.A miracle (what else can you call it):the sun rose today at three fourteen a.m.and will set tonight at one past eight.A miracle that's lost on us:the hand actually has fewer than six fingersbut still it's got more than four.A miracle, just take a look around:the inescapable earth.An extra miracle, extra and ordinary:the unthinkablecan be thought.
Yes, easy to forget what life is all about. So hard now when a few of us are aware that the destiny of our Nation is now at critical mass and can go either way. It pains me to think of all those who before us sacrificed so much so we could enjoy such sights.
It's been bathed in a RED glow since the Democrats moved in :-)But seriously, that's a very pretty picture!
Starting a day looking at that give one hope.
It's a Beauty...
So are your Celestial Nebulae, Kid.
AOW,The image makes me want to hop a flight and come to see you right now! I recognize the home. Yep. I need to book that flight!Tammy
Tammy,I'm ready for your visit! The guest room is clean. I'm hoping that the coming nephrostomy will restore my appetite. I'm tired of not being hungry.
