Take The Good With The Bad

I’m at a very bad truck stop tonight in North Carolina. It’s the kind of stop you don’t want to walk around at night so I take Vinny out one last time at dusk. Here you see the usual trash cast aside by those with no respect for others.

Like I always do I try to find some corner of content, a little wedge of clear elegance in the midst of human disregard. I think I succeeded.

This field of wheat reminds us that even surrounded by people that don’t care, in the middle of the decay of society as a whole, the beauty of nature shines through to give us something to be thankful for. For one to truly live a life of fulfillment we must learn to look past the jagged edges, through the barbed wire, and take the good with the bad.

  1. I’m over in Lowell staying the night at a customer’s lot.. dirty and gritty industrial area.. But around one corner of the building, a long and wide area of lush green grass ! Going to cook up some chicken thighs for dinner and brownies for dessert 😊
    It might take a search, but you’re right, we can carve out some peace in the most unlikely places 👍
