ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 3

As I sat here looking out at a beautiful blue sky, with a breeze coming in through the open slider, I wonder how there can be so much turmoil in our world. Noodle hasn't peed in the house yet, the sun is shining,Bob is reading , classical music is playing on our one station classical music station and I have to wonder how things can be so upsetting around the world, while I just sit here and peacefully look out. I had this same kind of feeling ,years ago,, when I was called home because my sister was gravely ill. I left Chicago and landed in sunny , warm, New Orleans that had this same kind of blue sky and warm breezes. I asked then, how could anyone die when it was so beautiful outside. Thank God she didn't die, but went on to live many years, but it's the same question. When the sky is so blue, the breeze so pleasant and I just look out at it and I still wonder,why everyone can't sit still and enjoy what is in front of them. I guess that I just don't have an answer for this. Maybe the answer will come to me this week end. Shabbat Shalom. All.
