Foul weather

It was a somewhat hurried late afternoon, running errands and trying to get home before dark so I could fill the bird feeders and at least partially muck the gutters before tomorrow’s 25mm, possibly 50 mm plus rainfall. So I will repost a photo taken 365 days ago.


What the future has in store is impossible to know. We chart a course based on current conditions, our reading of those conditions, and our best estimate of future conditions. Yet we should be prepared to alter course to take advantage of unanticipated fair winds, to avoid (or at least prepare for) foul weather.

Aye matey, foul weather likely be athwart our course.



Hello dear readers! I hope you have had a swell holiday so far. Mine has been very, very good. After a few days’ rest and respite, I resume my regular posting.


The pilings of a long-ago small boat dock disappear into dense fog, like our individual and collective futures. We can plan, anticipate, prepare. We can see more (or less) clearly into the near future, minutes, hours, even days ahead. Yet we cannot know what awaits each of us, all of us.
