Today Is Filled With Sunshine

Houston today is filled with sunshine.

Above is a picture I took of the sunshine.

You can’t beat a day filled with sunshine.

Sunshine can come directly from the sun.

Or—People in your life and the things you like in your life can provide for a kind of metaphoric sunshine.

Both literal and metaphoric sunshine are of great value.

Civilizing Influences—For Better Or Worse

This morning I went out for breakfast.

While at breakfast, I read the newspaper.

Taking time to eat breakfast and read the paper can only exert a civilizing influence in our fast-paced and often ignorant society.

You see that the headline in the newspaper reports that six NATO troops were killed in Afghanistan.

War is a big part of civilization.

Maybe civilizing influences are a mixed bag.
