as they pass each other in this flood

“What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What’s the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?”

~Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta

Yesterday, in the desert, there was a hail storm, a double rainbow, recycling bins floating in flooded waters, houses and streets flooded, and people standing on the trunks of fallen trees – admiring this freak event of nature.
