a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Self-Immersed

on a rainy day in James Patterson's Alex Cross, Winston Churchill's lifetime and the fruit salad that is our current political climate.
I take moments to watch the fireflies and listen to the night.  No matter how crazy the world gets Mother Nature still soothes my soul.

Mother Nature is there to teach us, if only we were to learn our lessons well. I don't think politics is a fruit salad; I love fruit salad. I think politics is more of a compost bin. Just sayin'.

Sandra said...

we need to ship the politicians out to spend a month in mother nature, with only their own survival skills.. the ones who survive will be the new in office... ha ha on ann and the compost bin.. i agree with her to...

Isn't that the truth . . .
Loved your "fruit salad" quote . . .

Are those tadpoles? Wow, that's a lot in one place.

I too feel this way. No matter how crazy my day gets, I can sit on the deck and watch the sun set and feel one on one with Mother Nature. I have been busy in the city with a friend that just had surgery, with two trips this week. Yesterday's trip found colour in her face and sitting on edge of bed from hip surgery, so I have lots to be thankful for. Have a wonderful day. H to M.....almost have small parcel ready for delivery :)

I completely and totally agree with you!

As a child my friend took some tad poles from some pond. He gave me a few and I put them in a fish bowl outside. The majority of them died. But I think one grew up to be a frog

Cool shot of the tadpoles. I love listening to the sounds of nature at night. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

Oh yes, so very important for the quietness of our souls...my husband reads those Alex Cross books too. :) Fruit salad is a great description! Very polite too.

Ginny Hartzler said...

Me too. I think it calms us down.

What a crop of pollywogs. Sometimes nature is just the thing to take the crazy taste out of our mouths with the current political situation.

Definitely fruit salad, with some nuts and marshmallows thrown in the mix.

Oh, I totally get that. Mother Nature is my go-to place to soothe my soul!

Mother Nature always there for us - especially when there are times when she can help soothe our souls.
Although I wish some may treat her more kindly,

All the best Jan

Amen to that, Gail. Amen.

Susan Anderson said...

Yes, sometimes it seems that Mother Nature and the One who created her are all we have to lean on.

Fruit salad is the perfect description for this mess, and I so agree with you that nature soothes and heals, and helps us regain perspective.

Once I had a tank of tadpoles, where some disappeared each day. Then one was left, one big transformed frog.
