Following The Light

a week of variations

Our shadowy winter continued last week with more gloom and more cold. Day-after-day, a little light here or there, but not much until Friday. Then, the sun returned and laughed in our faces,

(Yes, that’s a Ted Cruz reference — sorry!)

Again, I hope we’ve left temperatures in the 30s behind us. Again, I hope spring is really, truly here.

And I am grateful I don’t live in Texas — because of the horrific winter storm there, because of their inadequate utility infrastructure, because of Ted Cruz and whoever that governor is who slings blame everywhere but where it belongs. I hope a storm like that never comes to Florida. I think our infrastructure is better but our governor is as bad or worse.

Most of all, I hope the good citizens of Texas recovery quickly and hold their elected officials responsible for criminal ineptitude.

If we’ve learned anything in this pandemic, it’s that we must cling to anything that deserves our gratitude.

For the past year of never-ending horrors, photography helped me stay grounded and grateful.

Note: The hawk was ill-tempered because a group of crows chased him from their nests, depriving him of breakfasting on their young.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
