Life Just Is

I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll…John Lennon

Most years the wheels roll smoothly. Flowers bloom and die. Trees bud and leaves fall. Birds arrive and depart. This relentless force, life, slouches forward.

I understand why people credit this force to a god. From a distance life appears ordered, even planned. From a distance life is perfect. From a distance the earth is a big blue marble.
