Life is amazing
I am constantly amazed by life and the world around me, in both positive and negative ways.
One moment I am amazed by the tone and intensity of a gull’s call, and in the next by a disturbing piece of news.
I am often amazed by the kindness and generosity of total strangers, and just as often by the mean greed that places profit above humane business practices.
I am amazed by the compassion of a group of people working together to push beached whales back into the sea, and equally amazed by the cruelty of those who kill wild animals for sport or prized body parts.
I am amazed by our ability to extract oil from the earth, and equally so, by our lack of respect for the earth (and seas) we extract it from.
Although I don’t often write about such things, that amazement affects how I live my life and the things I choose to write about and that’s why I call the blog alisonamazed.
