The Week Ends

It's been a long and good week away from the blog. We watched the State of the Union. We heard Jim Webb's fine rebuttal. I think if I could summarize the president's attitude it would be this: He would like to give tax breaks to the wealthy because they have given us global warming and health care that is too expensive. Is that what you heard too? Or maybe it was this: He would like one more chance to make another bad decision about Iraq or Iran, whatever. Are they different countries? It used to be that we had to mind our "P"s and "Q"s, now it's mind your "Q"s and "N"s, if you can.
The sun came out for two seriously gorgeous days. The sun. Shining as brightly and warmly as a dream. It didn't even matter that the temps were only in the 40s or 50s, the heat was still spell-binding. Whatever we were doing, it had to be dropped for worship of this mighty star. I understand why the seeds in the ground are stirred. I could feel it in my cells. Some pull to come up for the light. I could only answer by sitting against the sliding glass door and letting the light filter through my closed eyes.

I saw fire from a zillion miles away.
I hope you have remembered to send your Good Planet photos to Laura of Somewhere in NJ. Her email is lc_hardy at comcast dot net. This is Laura's last week, and we'd like to thank her for her fantastic vision and elegance. She has contributed to the evolution of this photographic carnival with stunning grace. Thank you, Laura. Next host for the month of February is Susannah of Wanderin' Weeta. Her email is susannah at dccnet dot com. Please send her your views of our very beautiful earth. If anyone out there would like to host Good Planets for March or any time thereafter, please drop us an email. Thanks everyone, and have a great weekend.
If you're out there on Saturday marching for peace-- thank you.
