Dear God ...

What the hell is going on?

Now Chile?

Forgive my presumptive complaining, and maybe this isn't your handiwork, but:

An 8.8 Earthquake (because a thousanth of that wasn't enough)?
400,000 made homeless in an hour?
Another opportunity to saddle up, and dig out the dead?
Another opportunity to be woefully unprepared?
Another opportunity to see our daily problems as petty echoes of true suffering?
Another opportunity to rise to our better selves?

Seems to me that someone's nudging us down the highway toward hell.

Can you point us toward a rest stop?

Buried - Part Deux

Sometimes, you just have to sigh and put it down.

As my Mom says when she wants us to place things in their proper perspective: "No matter what you do, the sun's going to come up tomorrow morning like nothing ever happened."

Work, politics, relationships. financial concerns, religious conflicts, disaster, oppression. Sometimes it all seems so relentless, like a blizzard birthed clear across the country, flowing eastward, eastward, Eastward, Ho! All the preparation in the world comes down to doing what you can do.

And the sun will rise tomorrow.

And we will start again.

A few hardy souls

DO have to say one thing though:

Hey! Did you have to park so close to my car???

This is my car.

This is my car on snow.

Any questions?

This is Steph and Ry who started the community car clean-off. Thank guys!

Just goes to show, when the world or life or a random circumstance buries you ...

There's always someone to help you dig out.

Happy Shovelling ...
