A Balance of Nature



February came and went like a silent storm for me.  It’s been a mild winter, yet the weather put pressure on the usual winter of “not feeling good” when my head is all stuffed up and I need to focus on my child’s education.  Aside from the weather and not feeling well, I just didn’t have the energy or inspiration to write any thoughts for the Leap Year month.

With the coronavirus amping up, we have to understand that this is a mammal based virus that has been around for a while.  When outbreaks of sickness occur, I believe it is a type of natural disaster like the tornado that devastated Tennessee, hurricanes and earthquakes.  We might want to think about the idea that the balance of life may have tipped too far to one side, and nature is trying to compensate for this imbalance.  It’s never pleasant to accept that a human should perish in undesirable conditions, be it a car accident or a fall or a virus.  


We must not forget that we humans are apart of nature.  Now is a good time to appreciate life, to find the hints of good that come from the fears of the unknown.  We are amazing beings experiencing what life on this planet is like.  Living in fear is not living.  So, please try to experience life with love and hope and gratitude.
