Window on the world

I'm trying out a new layout, trying to show more expression to what I print here. Often what I write I think of as my view from the window looking looking over the world. It may be a tiny view or a grand one. It might be lovely or drab, simple or horrific. We all have our window view. What is yours?

Storms build up and pass over causing all kinds of havoc. The Gulf of Mexico is gradually being devastated by man's quest for oil. What can I do about these things? ....nothing. I care, but I do not worry.  I help when and where I can, but I do not run myself in the ground striving to fix something that I cannot fix. 
Because man exists, these situations happen or affect humanity. Without humanity,  the storms would still come, oil may find a way to seep to the surface and polute the waters.  We live with it and we deal with it, but do not let it be a cause for stress, fear, anger, discouragement.  These.....these emotions will killl, steal and destroy humanity much faster than those others ever will.

Sitting in the backyard, I notice the trees, their shapes and how they grow. I watch the tiny birds flit from branch to branch the soft feathers blowing in the whisper wind. The flowers growing here and there dot the landscape with the brilliant colors to break up the green and brown. Fluffy white clouds float past me above punctuating the azure blue sky. Life is fragile and yet continue.  We must protect what we can...even if it is our own life.
