They Go Low, We Go High

HOW REFRESHING it was to look up and see rust coloured autumn leaves fluttering over the roof recently.

Although it's easy to feel low when mired in politics, a cotton candy pink sky put current events into broader perspective while a leaf, stuck on a branch, appeared ready to fly when the morning light shone through it.

Meanwhile, seemingly overnight, a plant gone to seed had burst into stars.

I don't think it's quite what Michelle Obama had in mind when she said, "When they go low, we go high." But it is uplifting to look beyond the noisy chatter into what nature does continuously without much fanfare every single day.

  2. The rust colored leaves and the pastel rosy sky seen through the bare branches are so beautiful. I’d like to keep mind and eyes like yours which didn’t miss the overnight change on the seeds, no matter what nasty things happening around us.

  8. My heart is shattered too Maria (the picture on your other blog said it well). This morning Bill and I drove to a nearby pond area to walk and look at birds and take pictures. That made me feel that we will perhaps survive all of this hate.

  9. I could not comment on your other blog. Wanted to say we also was chocked by the choosing of Trump :(
