What a pity! Today, we were planning to climb back on the bikes to reinvigorate our stultifying minds and atrophying bodies, but it seems as though the howling winds will thwart us. And after this windy treat, we are promised two days of rain. There exist some who might make much of this, for, apparently, there are some who actually believe that the divine might alter the weather — just for them: for their convenience, or for reward, or to teach them special lessons.
How to fathom such thinking? For the divine to reorder one person's weather, He or She would be required to rearrange the whole planet's circulatory system. Because it all works together doncha know? Perhaps that would result in floods in Romania or drought in Ethiopia, and I'm sure no one really wants to be held responsible for that!
Me? I just think it's too windy for biking and that I must find something else to suffice. There is, for example, someone in this house who sees this a fine opportunity for me to mow the lawn — bless her neat-freaky, little heart.
Okay, sigh, I'm getting to it.
Please God, maybe just this once, you could make the wind stop ... just this once.
Back to our regularly scheduled photo. My last tulip shot, I suppose.
