Completely outperformed

The sky and sun, the clouds and light, even the gulls… all conspired on this morning to perform opera.

From first blush to crescendo there was little the audience could do but be repeatedly stunned by the rapidly changing performance.

All of this with the air crisp autumn of the tropical Southern Hemisphere.

And into this beauty I gave up all the troubles of the last few days.

Against the backdrop of nature doing what nature does, it was hard to find my petty troubles holding significance.

Ah to be humbled by beauty.

It is so hard to be full of hubris when we are so completely outperformed by grandeur beyond any resource we have to capture, accumulate, own and profit from.

The performance was freely given to all.
