with me

A nature person, I might rather be a nature person, it’s nice out this morning, but only as nice as breathing 93% can be even at a July dawn of 75° so not sitting outside.  

Black and a square of 72% for waking up though not working fast, may be due to last night’s late-to-bed, 9:30 pm, now a lingering brain fog. Supper on the porch, tug pushed a barge by, 

sailboat catching the evening breeze to head home; seeming suddenly to lose their bearings, pelicans circled overhead on their way to bird island for the night

As ever needing advice for myself, this from a friend’s FB page to correct me

Monday morning wisdom from Anu Garg in a frightening election year of demagoguery and terror: 

Hatred is the most accessible and comprehensive of all the unifying agents. Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God, but never without belief in a devil. -Eric Hoffer, philosopher and author (25 Jul 1902-1983)

I fear we have known America as the founding fathers meant it to be, and that we are in transition to something ugly, hateful and different. God help us; left to ourselves we’ve become increasingly self-destructive.

O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Fly away with me
to another world ...
