What a Wonderful World

Most of my time on Facebook is spent arguing about politics and it is largely a fruitless and bitter endeavor, people are shit and the story never changes, but as I scroll through today avoiding any articles about Matt Gaetz, and trying hard not to think too much about the Derek Chauvin trial, I still see posts of natural, and sometimes man-made, beauty from around the world.
From the blooming jacaranda trees in Mexico City’s Chapultepec Park to some flowering cherry trees in South Korea (any day now in Prague, any day now), from a beach at sunset in Angola to the ancient Roman city of Ronda in the south of Spain, with it’s bizarrely high bridges, from a botanical park in the Netherlands, neatly planned beds of glorious tulips and other flowers along the banks of a canal, and I think to myself, in the immortal words of Louis Armstrong, what a wonderful world.
