Point of View

The point of view often depends upon where you sit. In my garden, this morning felt and looked not much different than yesterday. The air a bit plumper with moisture. A good day to take for granted.



Photographer Gene Sasse's garden view is more panoramic than mine. From his Alta Loma garden, see the dramatic visual picture of this spring storm rolling

In the distance: a dark charcoal cloud bank lines up upon the horizon.

Stealthily, the charcoal smudge grows; threatening to smite our sunshine.




But before gloom dooms the day, the clouds begin to lift, to separate. The massive darkness breaking into islands of clouds, the sky looks not so menacing.

Looking at Gene's images, I thought of how they artistically represent where many of us are in life. Problems are coming at us. We worry that we will be overwhelmed. But if we take time. See our concerns as though a a perspective, then we have time to prepare.


Life is like the weather. We cannot control it. But we can prepare. Those who do may not only weather the storm- they can harness its power.

I like your comment, "Life is like the weather ...." So true. I don't think I'd like to control my life, just make the turns necessary and listen to that 'inner voice' giving me hints...... It's amazing sometimes how that 'voice' knows just the right thing to do. :O)
