7:37 pm - For Jeff...
That was real cute, but I get to say it anyway...

I am not going to play the "wow, you are so smart games"...instead I will say what I want to say...

If you think there is nothing in this life, fine, then MAKE SOMETHING. Why is it so easy to build things for others but you cannot do it for yourself? I cannot be friends with you right now because you cannot even friend yourself.

I am done.

4:42 pm - Everyone has their own perspective...
I sat in a team meeting today where a person commented that the abnormal hurricane season was because the end of the world is coming and he quoted Revelations as saying that the world would be destroyed by fire or water and the end was near and said hurricanes were proof of that. I was floored that this was said in the middle of a meeting but after the meeting I pulled him aside and advised that per the Bible he quoted, a covenant was made by god after the great flood and it stated that he would never destroy the world again by water/food/etc. O well, guess we can pick and choose, aye?

I guess it just made me think about perspectives. He views this hurricane season as horrible and destructive and abnormal. I view it as natural and necessary to the renewal of life. (see article below).I believe in the power of nature to do what it needs to do. We are a small part of nature and it is not concerned with houses being destroyed or the damage it does to our little cars or houses or whatnot.
Nature is primal.
People view these hurricanes as destructive just because they inconvenience us and destroy structures...but we fail to recognize the new plant life that grows as the winds spread seeds and rip old dying plants out to make room for new life...we ignore the new fresh water that comes after the first hurricane washes away and dissipates all the polluted water that WE created..we ignore the new coral that is growing 10 fold since these hurricanes began.
We humans have such a sad and limited view of things. We have the same view on those "horrible" forest fires..come on, they are a natural occurrence. Lightning comes in ignites and burns old forests and in their place, new life emerges in ever more fertile ground. Sure, it sucks if your house is destroyed, you live without power for weeks or someone close to you is killed, but why look to the end of the world just because it seems abnormal to us. The number of forest fires, the number of hurricanes may not be abnormal in the scheme of things, but god damn if CNN and your preacher don't make you think it is. We have only been recording nature for a few decades, the world was not created out of happy bunnies and fluff sandwiches people...it was created out of pure force and every once in awhile, it shows some of its youth...and it can be powerful and beautiful.

It amazes me, it really does. Anyway, here is article about the positive effects of weather like this. So, if you are living in half a house or without water right now, look at it from a positive view...at least there are some damn happy fish somewhere in the everglades!
