Change is upon us.
Look around. What do you see? Do you see changes in your life?
Backwards movement can be labeled bad, but sometimes it is not. Maybe like human evolution, lasting change must be slow.
Meandering along with inevitable change benefits some, whose go-with-the-flow attitude is like starlings flying in formation, but if only a few break away, everything changes.
Have you ever watched starlings?
Aren’t they beautiful?
Oh, how I should like to be one of the starlings to lead a new way.

Outside looking in on a world with a different reality.
There is room for all.
Benign feelings contradict human thoughts about survival.
We treat others with care and feel the joy that comes with that. We treat others harshly and then pain is felt by both.
Problems arise when people take pleasure in other’s pain. Words cause joy, but also can cause pain.
Better to sing and dance!
This is what Emma wrote this morning in answer to my question, “What do you want to blog about this morning?”
We have been studying gene mutation, evolution, Darwin and how species adapt to their environment. We have also just finished reading Romeo and Juliet. I see the influence of all of these topics as well as Emma’s own unique and exquisitely compassionate take on this world and life.
