But enough ranting about corporate America. It’s kinda cool this morning, with the wind blowing out of the southeast. I’m sitting here in the backyard trying to listen to a couple of birds overhead. Hoping that my buddy’s next door have finally “milked the clock enough “ to go on to the next lawn. The smell of gasoline and oil is finally dissipating since the leaf blowers have moved on. But there’s still plenty of racket to be heard over the birds from somebody banging on a dumpster and the large number of cars heading to the courthouse.
But like I said, I’ll stop ranting. Things don’t often go according to plan. My friends out there with their five year plans would probably go crazy with all this excess noise. But as nature often reminds us the unexpected often brings the most pleasant surprises. Such as the appreciation you feel once the noise is finally gone. You can’t appreciate happiness without experiencing a little sadness. Nor can you appreciate the sunshine without a little rain. Life gives to us what it gives. It’s up to us to create the balance.
