Just this morning, the national and local weather prophets parlayed percentages, calculated and played the over-under, took a side short-sell position and told a joke . . . in under 180 seconds.
The only thing that actually happened was the joke. All else was smoke.
All the computer models with all their computer generated graphics,
and not a single snowflake.
Reality is what shows up and then we do our best to deal with it. That’s one of the truths we overlook as we so fervently try to predict…
Back to the weatherpersons . . . have you noticed how (even though they’re wrong so often as to be of little practical use) . . .
We still want to believe them. It’s rather amusing, in a charming, quaint way.
How do we show, then recognize that desire to continue to believe?
We continue to watch their broadcasts or ask our friends if they’ve watched one recently . . . pretty convincing evidence, no?
So . . .
What I’m pointing us towards
what I so earnest hope will bring a warm smile to your heart as you feel it with me right here
is how fervently we all want to believe and how naturally capable of genuine belief we are . . .
We can get to love from here
(notice: we’re not in our heads about this)
