Monday Morning Musing: Celeberate What’s Right with The World

Yeah, I know, does look a bit on the gloomy at the moment.

I’m a realist more than an optimist or a pessimist. I reckon that if there water in the glass, who cares if its half filled or half empty!!! 🙂

Also I don’t want to add to the morbid fascination that our ‘news’ people have now set as a new benchmark.

I follow online Dewitt Jones and his Celebarate what’s right with the world.

The current image wasn’t on display on the site when I looked a few minutes ago ( I get an email version)

And I can’t paste the image (copyright, intellectual properties and all),

But I’ve taken the liberty to post the text. (It was a shot of a dandelion seed head against the sun. Imagine if you will, sparkling crispness with strong dark shapes and lines)

Not with fear, but with Love

This tiny orb, backlit by the sun, shining with truly unexpected beauty
and shining with incredible potential for growth and possibility as well.
I send it to you today at a time
where many in the world are filled with dread.
I send it to remind us that there is far more
to celebrate on this planet than there is to fear.
To remind us that by celebrating what’s right with the world;
we will find the energy, the love, and the compassion
to deal with what’s wrong.
We will get through this, my friends.
Not with fear, but with love.
It’s our choice, each and every day.
Dewitt first name

As a French publisher I’ve worked with sent to me this morning,

Until then, let’s be united in this ordeal, and be well.

  1. I made the sunset about a week ago. As soon as I saw the rimlit cloud forming, I knew how it would look. Made the shot, looked at the result (the above is straight out of camera), and it was hard not to hold back a little bittie tear. 🙂

  2. So true, David. People tend to focus on the negative of any situation, but every situation has an upside.
    Right now we need to be seeing the beauty, sharing it with others and looking out for each other.

    1. Hi David,
      From Anita on the Advivum website,
      >>While social distancing is a critical health measure at this time, it is important to remember that it is meant to insist on a geographical distance between us, not an emotional distance. As humans we are hardwired for connection, we are meant to live in community, we have an important psychological need to feel like we are a part of one another. <<

      I may be one, but I will try to keep that emotional connections as I'm able.


  3. True indeed. Let’s hope the whole world comes out of this crisis a bit wiser and more caring for each other and the environment. Stopping most human activity for a prolonged period has to be good for the planet.

  4. True David we need to love rather than fear, though the human nature when it can’t control a situation where the outcome is undetermined, will often produce fear and anxiety for many. I have a saying which I share on my website and various writings To look for the Treasure in the Trial. As every situation has its own blessing and life lesson. We are already starting to see change in life as we know it, and yes relationship is becoming more precious and less taken for granted as we move into a previously uncharted season. We are reassessing what we once took for granted, and giving thanks for health, government, social structure and many more things. Love your feature photo, there is light and hope breaking through those clouds.

    1. Hello Ashley,
      i think I’ve had a bit of a day of introspection and reordering of priorities, but none the less, I came across the words of an old hymn that sort of resonates with me, I don’t know the tune, but the gist of looking and appreciating the around resonated with me.
      You may know it.
      >>For the beauty of the hour
      Of the day and of the night
      Hill and vale
      And tree and flower
      Sun and moon and stars of light

      Best wishes, and keep taking photos, We do!
