Nature Must Be Obeyed


~Francis Bacon

Of Note: We humans perceive that we are the supreme masters of the universe. With technology we believe anything can be discovered, uncovered, cured, fixed, created, maintained, alleviated, influenced, destroyed and/or compensated. In ignorance, we view the physical world as our personal playground and make every decision based on the "reality" before our eyes. Looks can be deceiving. During the Age of Enlightenment, Master Bacon reminded us that the higher, invisible universal laws prevail. We have only to look at the chaos before us to understand that we do not fully understand this concept. When we do, and we will, nature will rejoice because one day it will work in concert with an enlightened humanity, and all will share in natural abundance.

Today's Weather Report: It is a gloomy November day outside with a temperature at 32 degrees Fahrenheit or there about. Most Novembers, heavy clouds are the predominant feature. So, this is normal. We were lulled into complacency, however, with the balmy weather in the 50's for the first part of the month. The snow storm took many of us by surprise. Shouldn't have, but it did. As it turned out, we only had a few inches of snow though it was of the heavy, wet variety. While doing emails this morning, I was startled by very loud booming and crunching noises.....over and over. Come to find out, those noises were sheets of heavy snow falling from roof to roof then to the ground. Thankfully, no one was hurt. The dogs with their long coats think it is heavenly outside. During the summer, they spent much time in the water to cool off. Now the water is frozen snow, and they like that even better. Interestingly, this part of the Namekagon River near Seeley rarely freezes. The shot was taken from the landing adjacent to our property last fall.
