Look again....

... I woke early this morning and drove to my Mother's house... it's quickly nearing time to close the pool for the season, and I had been asked to help move some of the Summer furniture... Autumn is in the air here in the mountains... 64 degrees at daybreak... it'll get hot by the afternoon, but this morning it was bearable... soon my favorite season will be here...

... I came back home around eleven and settled myself on the patio for a while... temperature hovering around 75 degrees and a slight breeze stroking the wind chimes... dappled sunlight falling through the branches of the dogwood trees creating patters on the pink and tan stones... the smell of the fallen leaves that the poplars let go when the remnants of Katrina came through on Tuesday... I could almost feel myself recharging... the past week has been hard to deal with... writing has become almost pointless as you watch the scenes on television... sitting inside the house glued to the agony... you forget that there is still beauty and happiness... and there is, you know...

... two flocks of geese passed over as I was smoking... honking their way east towards a small lake I know.. blue jays, too, were making noises in the trees overhead.. no doubt doing what they always do as the gangbangers of the forest - robbing a nest of a smaller bird.... but even in their own evil way, they are performing as programmed.. nature...

... and that's the point, I guess... you can sit in the same place and see two different worlds if you want.. but it is your choice on which one to dwell on... lately, I've been seeing only the ugly... but today I'm choosing differently...
