The Sun goes down, the Sun comes up

Sometimes when the world of humanity seems to be in the most frantic and crazy disarray, the simple turning of the Earth in the Universe can be a comforting phenomenon to embrace. 

Sunset last night in my neck of the island

Not exactly sun rise, but sun rising
To help with gazing at things that turn turn turn to every season, I got this from an email sent by Bill Kunke, who is always sending along Nature's wonders that he observes. This one is good for the whole summer! Thanks, Bill. I think I'll be putting in a lot of roof time on the houseboat. A total solar eclipse in August, viewable from the US? Mark your calendars!

You'll find the whole explanation right here!
To not lose hope is a good thing. And I think one of the most beautiful examples of that was expressed by the family of the Canadian woman who died in the London attack. I think I'd be crumpled speechless on the floor; my admiration is tremendous. 

“She had room in her heart for everyone and believed strongly that every person was to be valued and respected,” said the family in a statement issued by spokesman Patrick Audet and distributed by Global Affairs Canada. 
Archibald had worked at a homeless shelter before moving to Europe, and her family asked people to honour her memory by giving back to their communities.
“She would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death,” said the statement. “Please honour her by making your community a better place. Volunteer your time and labour or donate to a homeless shelter. Tell them Chrissy sent you.”
Have a find the magic in Monday. Do something with meaning. Tell them Chrissy sent you.
