Discovering Fire

Someday, after we have mastered
the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity,
we shall harness for God the energies of love.

Then for the second time in the history of the world,
we will have discovered fire.

~ Teilhard de Chardin

Of Note: Can you imagine a world where Love, Truth and Beauty reign supreme? Light would definitely have to be part of that bountiful scene. In my mind's eye, all beings glow from the inside out--like fireflies--each emanating it's own combination of color from a scintillating palette. It will take such imaginative thoughts to create a beautiful future. Might I suggest that every day we take five minutes and rest with our eyes closed thinking about a future filled with Love, Truth and Beauty. The universe will thank us for the thoughtful contribution--and if nothing else, it will be the best five minutes we spend each day in communion with all like-minded people.

Today's Weather Report: Here we are talking about fire again. As I was reporting on it two days ago, unbeknown to me, Jim was fighting a big grass fire in our field! It burned a large section before going out--thankfully, two neighbors helped. Although the field is a sooty black now, next spring the growing grass will be thrilled with the ash. Today it was a balmy 51 degrees Fahrenheit, and a friend and I enjoyed a lunch of soup and salad in the streaming sunlight.
