The problem with this world....

She said, "The problem with this world is that not enough people watch birds."

The more I think about it, the more I think: she could be right.

The problem with this world is... how would you complete that sentence?

By the way, her funeral is on Saturday.

The problem with this world is that people don't watch enough birds... especially the wounded one in one's own soul.

I think I agree with her in a symbolic sort of way.

The problem with this world is....we've become blind to humanity, our own and those around us.

The problem with this world is that people hold the small picture up to block the view of the big picture.

I have to agree. You can't fight or even holler when you are watching birds. Not very metaphoric, but true.

I think Proclaiming Softly has an excellent point!

I think the biggest problem with this world is that humans base their lives on fear and a sense of scarcity. We'll never get far from the cave until we stop thinking that everything in life is a zero-sum game.
