Nature Over Words Today.

The words in my heart weep.

And the sadness is fueled by anger…anger that we do so little about so much, fear what we don’t understand, condemn those who are different and blame the poor for being poor.

I could lash out but that would merely drive the angry dialogue. I could make a clear, concise argument for how we, as people, should change. But that only happens if individuals choose to evolve.

At a loss for words, I opted to share photos from this week…pictures of this beautiful world around me.

Maybe we can all stop long enough to listen to nature’s silence.

And gain some of the peace that is inherent in our world.
