Weird Divide


Into the black and out of the green.

Graphic. Green. Growth. It seems we are heady this way. Even though the temperature has been fairly cold for us. Our low yesterday morning was 41 degrees. I have friends in Tampa, Idaho. Snow country. The low there yesterday morning was 42 degrees.

Inverted.

That’s the thing. We have such a long list of things that need fixing that it seems we are almost forgetting that the biggest problem of all is hanging out there lie a big old slow pitch.

Climate change.

I know that it’s on the new president’s mind. I know California car makers are going back to the Obama standards for mile per gallon. And, GMCs want to be all electric in the very near future. It’s a start, but it’s not even close to being enough.

I could list the rest of the things that are broken and need repair, but you already know them. You wish that you didn’t.

Even though I have no real say in this, how about… we knock down three drones with one stone? Pay the people who are out of work and whose jobs may never return to rebuild the infrastructure. Rebuild the infrastructure in the most climate friendly way possible.

Think about it.

Seeing is believing, or so they say. Okay. I’m good with that. I believe that I saw this wonderful fern in the morning light.

I believe. I saw. I believe.

Good enough for me.

This is what I call a small picture that came from really seeing.

I’m not dissing anybody, but how hard is to see a sunset? Or rolling hills in winter light? Or, something through a very wide angle lens?

It’s not hard. Unless the light is amazing these things are the building blocks on which the rest of a portfolio is built.

At least, that’s what I think. There are probably 100s of people who think differently.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay mighty. Wear your mask. Wash your hands. Keep your distance. Look after each other. Eat your greens.

  1. The only thing weak in your premise is that it makes too much sense! 🙂

    I love your photo. It makes me think of Hawaii, actually. Can’t imagine when I will travel there again.
