New: A DisciplineI find myself transfixed by the new this morning.

If you have ever had the privileged of enduring a Seattle winter, you will never look at a blue sky the same. It feel it must be akin to being blind, then waking up to sight.
I think I am entering (another) new-normal. There is a real mental discipline necessary (and one I am proud to say I feel myself growing stronger in) required to enjoy these times when the dust of Bowie's incessant transitions settle. I have every confidence this new-norm will dissipate quickly, but I am determined to feel the goodness of it while I can.
For how can we move forward with seeing the evil in this world (i.e. noticing and eradicating the racist or misogynistic lingerings in our 'modern' culture) if we cannot move forward with seeing the good? Both require a trained, disciplined eye.
And if you cannot locate the Universe's gift of new to you, perhaps a new photograph of Bowie will assist.
