It is good to have some "wonder" in the day.
We have had a week of warm (for March) weather with sunny skies and billowy clouds, but today it was supposed to rain all day. Instead we had a sky full of contrails. Contrails are those white lines of cloud-like substance that trail the airplanes...condensation. Most days one cannot see them, but today the elements were just right and there were dozens of contrails crisscrossing the sky. One can only wonder at the amount of planes up above at any given time. The contrails make it obvious that there are more than we are aware.
I was listening to NPR and they remarked that the unemployment rate in Detroit is over 10%, higher than the average 9% in the rest of the country. I wonder how this can be fixed and then I wonder about the domino effect of unemployment. Those unemployed are spending less on clothes, on movies, on food. They are spending less on gas, less on dry cleaning, less of paper goods, less on craft supplies, less on books and CDs. They are not buying new houses, new cars, new toys. I wonder how they will survive and how those businesses that depend on their purchases will survive. The businesses who are surviving are producing less and stocking less. This affects what is available Maybe if everyone who has not been affected by the economic downturn took a week or a month and spent money as if times were prosperous,it would have an impact on this domino game.
I am not a scientist and do not pretend to understand how everything works, but it seems to me that more wind turbines should be built and installed everywhere. I wonder why this is not being done. We live where it is almost always breezy if not downright windy. I wonder why we are not taking advantage of this. In our explorations across country, we have driven through a few areas that have little forests of these turbines. They are not ugly, not pretty and usually in unpopulated areas, but certainly there must be many more areas that could be adapted to using these turbines.
I wonder why we have had those ladybug-like bugs in the house all winter. Where do they come in? What attracts them? Why have they picked our house?
I wonder why.
