The last few posts have been about rather unpleasant issues.  They are important issues, but nonetheless, ones that folks often do not like reading about and/or discussing.  It truth, it is difficult to maintain a continual focus on so many of the world’s problems.

And so as with most things, it is important to find ways to maintain some sense of balance.

For example, taking a walk at Morgan Run after another rain and seeing the sunlight emerge, listening to the water run, and exploring the textures of the various rocks, trees, and plants provides a welcome contrast to city blight.  One that is cleansing for the soul.

Becoming enveloped in the stillness of Morgan Run it is easy to forget Detroit, New Orleans, Baltimore and not to mention Syria, South Sudan, and Ukraine.  And when in Detroit, for example, and seeing block after block of decaying buildings, it is easy to become cynical and question the beauty that can exist in the world.  Yes, balance is important because without that, one situation can easily become a means for denial of the other.

Take care.
