Beautiful morning.I so agree, Walt. No wonder people are angry all the time.
Rain is steady but not too cold. The stream is full but hasn't flooded its banks yet.
The deep gray of the sky makes the spring greens really pop.
For me what makes this a beautiful morning are the birds.
Since it's not super cold, and the rain isn't pouring, all the birds in the area out and about singing their songs.
I went out on the porch to get wood for the fireplace insert, and paused to listen. All the different songs blending and overlapping each other was like being in a concert. This is one of the best things of living here on the ranch 'cause I'm far from the human noise that so easily drowns out nature. All it takes is one car driving by to mask 90% of the singing. When in a more urban area, with the steady roar of human activity, 100% of what nature offers us is wiped out. No wonder people are angry all the time. They are missing the free concert to touch their soul.
Be creative. Find ways to escape the noise pollution. And be present to the natural beauty of the world.
