Something about today
I like graveyards. I especially like ones like this one just off the road somewhere in the middle of the USof A. They have been having a drought down there for a few years now and lots of things besides people are dead or dying or drying up. No more rivers, creeks, streams, lakes, ponds or reservoirs...all gone....all dried up. Most of the city folks seem oblivious and continue to use water like it is plentiful. Their cups are running over. Their glasses are more than half full. Their lawns are very green.
Today we walked along the river here in the valley. It's a big, wide river. So much water. Water gushing everywhere. Water seeping out of rocks. No snow here yet which is worrisome in the grand scheme of things and quite warm temps for December, but reassuring to know that there is water still close by.
