Church steeple and contrails

The world appears to be in quite a mess at the moment with many events occurring simultaneously.

I have written multiple posts about Superstorm Sandy and climate change and the lack of meaningful progress toward a solution.  Many more on trash, which, of course, continues to pile up.  Conflicts in the Middle East and Northern Africa appear to show no sign of relief, and in some cases, are escalating.  This list could go on.  As a result, it is quite pleasant to take a walk through a (relatively) quiet town and revel in the stillness of the back streets.

And while it is certainly a pushing of the season to have had Christmas decorations up since just after Halloween, it is nice to think about the spirit of the holidays, whichever are celebrated.  The consumerism that comes with some is quite a different matter altogether.  It is best to not think about that.

Take care.
