In a rush of much important stuff and things and deadlines and events it is easy to lose sight of the larger picture. It is easy, to stay focused in our own worlds and tiny tanks, feeling every ounce of our own import, the bigness of our fish selves. But there is a larger world out there, one that we play a de facto role in shaping. And so I emerge, and take in these things:
Alaska had wildfires in May.
There were tornadoes in Glasgow.
The starfish are dying.
The White House has a program to help the bees.
Americans, apparently, have finally decided they like soccer. And gay marriage. And marijuana.
Win some, lose some.
