Storm clouds and sunrise

Today, as you might have noted, was a rather busy day in terms of things like politics, economics and more besides.

This morning, though, I thought instead about how lucky I was to be able to see a sight like this — a combination of unstable air and the season leading to a spectacular display of lightning and rain in the distance on my way in to work.

Perspective is all. As I said over on Facebook today, I am neither Chicken Little nor Pollyanna, and I’m content to stay that way, open-eyed to the various oddities of the world but seeking to draw on that which is good in it at the same time.

Onward and along. Another busy week at work calls, but we’ll see how it all goes.
