Hope on a beautiful spring day

Went to the The Heard Museum in McKinney. It was the end of the day and the light was sharp and clear. I walked a few minutes on the trail and was quickly alone. I walked along the boardwalk that takes you out into the wetlands. Bare trees were emerging from the water into the bright sky and huge birds sweeping across the swamp. The natural world must be preserved and can be restored. The people who, in hope and commitment, have worked to restore this place, are like the women who believe in the way that our bodies work, and are committed enough to give birth naturally. They are the hope of humanity on this beautiful planet.
