Weatherizing

It's a rainy, dreary, and relatively cool tropical island today. Sometimes this weather makes Saipan look even more garden-esque. The buzz is there's a tropical storm forecast for tonight, and I noticed that at the local Toyota dealer the new car lot was vacant, so that's a sure sign that there's something brewing around here.
With all the natural disasters around the world lately, the ocean is a little more hard to take for granted than usual--like it's becoming...a being.
I've heard it said that we put the earth out of balance, and that the upheavals, i.e., earthquakes, storms, wildfires, etc, are just the effects of the earth attempting to bring itself back into a balance. Interesting...

THE World is too much with us; late and
soon,

Getting and spending, we lay waste our
powers:

Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid
boon!

This
Sea that bares her bosom to the moon,

The winds that will be howling at
all hours

And are up-gather'd now like sleeping
flowers,

For
this, for everything, we are out of tune;

It moves us not.—Great God! I'd rather
be

A pagan suckled in a creed outworn,—
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me
less forlorn;

Have
sight of Proteus
rising
from the sea;

Or hear old Triton blow his wreath├Ęd horn. William Wordsworth

Okay, that's it. I'll probably never post again.
