The Moment of Commitment

The moment one
definitely commits oneself,
then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur
to help one that would never
otherwise have occurred.


Of Note: Marie took these unfolding shots of an "ordinary" zinnia in her new garden. Note the flower within a flower in the top view. In the Eastern tradition, humans are often symbolically described as having the structure of stacked lotus flowers, otherwise known as chakras. The lotus flowers represent the fire of electricity which brings us Life. The insects in the bottom view don't care about that, though, as they go about busily doing their bug-thing.

Today's Weather Report: Last week I mentioned Hurricane Ike possibly hitting Galveston. Well, it certainly did--with news just now pouring in about the damage it caused. The whole island was probably flooded because the storm surge over-topped the levies. We will find out more as the day progresses. My brother and family in Houston fared well with little damage. The hurricane is going past the Dallas area where most of my extended family lives and then heading to Chicago where more of them reside. Here it is set to storm as it has been doing all week with temps in the 60's. With everything else going on weather-wise, I'm almost embarrassed to mention it!
