Life at the beach. Ah-h-h you say. I'll admit, the years here have been good for me. Now the winds have changed and I'm trying to stay on the lee side.
The winds of change are named BP. The faces of my kids, neighbors and friends are worried. Worried about the unknown, namely the toxic crude oil and dispersants that were spilled and sprayed into the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, spoiling the water. No one knows what will happen to our sea life, wildlife, reefs, beaches, or our own lives for that matter. We have no idea how many years it will take the Gulf to recover.
I am a positive thinker and want to believe that we will conquer anything that comes our way. I always see the glass half full, not half empty. A lot of people would call me a fool for believing we can get beyond this disaster. When I think about that, I remember that God helps those who help themselves. I only hope we CAN help and that the recovery will be in my lifetime.
