Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Today we took a longer drive in the sunshine and captured this lovely view of Rebecca Lake on the Colville Reservation.

A lovely view of the sun, who should live eight billion years, but, with climate change, how will humans fare? It’s in our hands.

and so, a poem

Eight Billion

Eight billion years
the sun will shine;
Will Man on earth
survive that time?
