Today I took a long walk here in Houston to mark the first day of spring.
Everyday life is interesting and there are many things to see if we take the time to look.
The top picture is of a Houston interpretation of Palm Springs.
We've got the palm trees, but the golf cart is a work vehicle of some type instead and the backdrop is a highway.
The entrance to James Bute Park, (Which unfortunately is a park not worth visiting.) has some cacti to look at to the right of the sign, a decent view of the skyline and a giant electrical power tower to contemplate.
And then here are some sailboats I saw in Discovery Green Park.
It is nice to see some boats on a sunny day.
Enjoyment of the everyday world is up to each of us just as the work of political freedom is up to each of us.
I believe strongly that both context and circumstance matter. We don't always control our own fates. We must work with others.
At the same time, we wake up each day (hopefully) and have to decide what to do with that day. When see value in the everyday things around us, then maybe we will be more likely to fight for better lives as well.
Here are some ideas for everyday resistance.
