I haven’t blogged in roughly two years. Cass says I ought to. The sunrise agrees.
So, here’s some thoughts.
- On Saturday, 29 million people tuned in to watch the royal wedding. That means that for one beautiful morning millions of people put down their weapons, shelved their discontents and disagreements, shut down the endless to-do lists in their brains. I’ll never understand the accusations of frivolity. The world needs beauty more than anything right now.
- Yesterday I noticed an elk crossing sign on my commute. I sometimes see mule deer and packs of coyote in the open space off of Indiana, but elk? I had such a hard time imagining roving herds of elk there that I Google image searched to confirm. Yep… turns out herds of elk are an actual road hazard in my neck of the woods. I’d love to be late because I had to wait for a herd of elk to cross the road.
- This morning the sun came out after an unusual stretch of cold gray rain and the world feels brand new. Everything’s leafy and green all of a sudden! The light is filtered through glistening leaves! I believe we should get the day of work today. The world’s too beautiful. Go outside. Your deadlines can wait.
- Why does office coffee always taste burnt?
