Someone told me long ago
There’s a calm before the storm
I know; it’s been comin’ for sometime
When it's over, so they say,
It'll rain a sunny day,
I know; Shinin' down like water.
I suspect tangents pop into other minds like they do in my mind. Who knows? Today I will follow a tangent or two. (even if you never mastered geometry, you must of have experience the tangent popping up in a conversation) So like the geometrical tangent these thoughts fly from the circle of thought never to return to the circle.
Consider the weather. We seem to talk (complain mostly) about it often. I have an in-law that obsesses over the weather and then shares her knowledge with anyone in eye shot. Weather reports are part of all the local newscasts. It’s the basis for a popular website and cable channel. Do our concerns and interest in the weather come from how often it’s uncomfortable? Occasionally it can even be life threatening.
Sun is cold and rain is hard,
I know; Been that way for all my time.
I believe mankind has benefited from crappy weather. Had the weather always been warm and comfortable as it typically is in the tropics, we would not have the heating and air conditioning systems of today. We might be living in huts ordered from IKEA. (honey, look at the Jones they still have not figured out how to assemble their hut)
Also, the best thing since slice bread, the snuggie, would have never been invented.
|at the snuggie store - on your wish list??|
I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?
