Point Of View

Global eyeball by rcw

I keep hearing Grateful Dead songs in my head…not a bad thing, actually. Matter of fact right now it’s
downright pleasant!  I am a little giddy, as are many who’ve been watching the Gulf tragedy unfold….giddy because there’s a little bit of good news; the oil is not leaking right now.

In what can only be described as a disaster of biblical proportions, this ecological nightmare has overshadowed almost every other news story on every network.  Now with the announcement of possible (if limited) success, we can sigh a prayer of gratitude…and keep a close eye on what happens next.

With everything going on in the world, sometimes I feel downright ancient!  It’s exhausting trying to make sense of it, so for today I’m just not going to bother. I’m just going to be happy with the bit of good news we’ve gotten today and see it as a sign that maybe there are good days ahead.

A lot of people are apathetic…they don’t want to see anything beyond trouble and tribulation.  They delight in seeing the glass as not only  half empty, but leaking as well. I fall into that chasm too; impressing myself with just how negative a picture I can paint…but what good does it do anyone?

So for today, and for as often as is humanly possible, I am going to try to find something positive, even if only one thing, in each day.  And yes, waking up and breathing count!

When thinking along those lines, today Fifty Five Is The New Point Of View….believing that good things are still possible is the only way to make them so.
