We were out for our daily walk, when this poem came to me. How easy is it to fool ourselves into seeing only what we want to see and think we know how it will all turn out. Stay well my friends.
If you didn’t know what was going on, you might be a tad confused,
most sidewalks have fewer pedestrians and the roads are barely used.
If you never listened to the news broadcasts or looked at your smart phone,
you would think this was the strangest occurrence that you had ever known.
But, people are struggling and some will succumb to this threat very real,
listen attentively, follow the rules, this is a really big deal.
We must all do our part, pay attention and stay truly receptive,
if we fail to do so, our reality won’t be so deceptive.
Now the photos that prompted this, the before and afters, so to speak.
The first shot looks like we are well on our way to a sloppy spring, the second one on the opposite side of the footbridge, not so much.
In this sequence, this row of houses looks perfectly normal, but look closer and you see the truth. Look across the street and you know what happened.
Ahhh, nothing like a walk in the mountains and through a birch grove. Then the reality of our small world of travel.
Down on the farm, but are we? Well, a tree farm on the edge of town, I guess.
This photo looks like spring green grass after a late snow fall. Nope, it is a low maintenance Astroturf lawn in April. Not only is the real grass around here not green, it is still frozen solid. Temperature on April 11 is -4C with a howling wind making it feel like -14C. Under these conditions, I would think the grass would be blue.
