Optimism (Fear-The Series)
|Camera:||Canon EOS 5D|
I’ve been feeling more optimistic these days despite. Well, despite everything.
I’m not alone, apparently. Recent polls say that quite a few Americans are feeling more optimistic about the economy since the inauguration.
You would not know it on Talk Radio which by total and utter mistake I heard a few snippets of yesterday in the middle of the monsoon.
Something happened while the naysayers were droning on.
It was pouring out, literally buckets at a time, making 2PM look like twilight.
Their shrill voices were bemoaning the end of the world and, then, something happened.
The leaden sky began to break apart with light.
I turned the carpers off and took out my camera.
Skies don’t lie. Nor do I.
This image I would not have created two months ago.
It is cockeyed with optimism, don’t you think?
It is mother nature, just not on the same day.
But, the miracle is: it is my nature on this day and I feel only one thing.
