Immensity of the Sea

If you want to build a ship,
don't herd people together
to collect wood and
don't assign them tasks
and work
but rather
teach them to long for the
endless immensity of the sea.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Of Note: Marie caught this endless expanse of the sea at Galveston which may be hit by a hurricane this week. We humans can't even get our brains around the immensity of the ocean which covers most of our planet. We have little knowledge of what's in it, on it or around it. Amazing really how little we know about something that is so hugely a part of the Earth.

Today's Weather Report: Sunny and hot today. I know it's hot when the Daturas in the pot on the southern exposed front porch wilt every day without water. But they always revive with a little drink.
