It's everywhere but we rarely pay attention. Sometimes we can get caught up in what appears to be important and have a little too much perspective, but some is a good thing.

We all watch with hope for the best and as I write this, hurricane Gustav is gaining strength before its inevitable collision with the U.S. southern coast. Mayor Ray Nagin ordered a mandatory complete evacuation of New Orleans as they are predicting that Gustav may be worse than Katrina. That gave me perspective in my safe home. I've experienced an earthquake - this is unfathomable.

My thoughts and best wishes are with the people of New Orleans and other cities and towns along the southern coast. I admire the strength and courage of those going through it. At a time like this we all feel powerless and the perspective of life's precious balance is ever-present.
