The ugly and the beautiful - all from one hike (2)
All along the way, colorful flowers. There was this perfectly rounded dandelion; a flower that looked like a bunch of tube worms from the bottom of the sea; wild azaleas high above Clear Water Bay; lots of unknown (to me) little flowers. And all kinds of trees that make dramatic patterns with the light.
On our right, the man-made ugliness of our destruction of the environment to build ostentatious “luxury” housing and to sustain boastful and wasteful consumption. On our left, the natural beauty of mountains, oceans, sand and water, trees and flowers. I think God was trying to remind us of what is truly desirable.
