Ripple Effect

Just in time...just as the calendar predicted - summer has arrived.

Sun that's so's blinding. Air that's so hot and's almost hard to breathe. The clouds drift. I find myself looking for some storm ones. Some ones that might offer up some cooling rain...some relief.

Hardly a breeze. Hardly a sound. Nothing's moving.

And then - from somewhere. Maybe up in a tree...or the sky above. Something dropped. Something fell.

I watched - mesmerized - as the ripples grew one into another. A reminder - I thought - of how one small act of nature can create such great change. How a simple thought can become an action..and how that action builds and grows..and - then - creates another..and another after that.

It's all so very simple. Is it not?
