no insult

Television is going the way of books -- going, going, gone. There are now so many ads on TV that it is hard to find the show itself. And the slices of story that are offered ...?

Sitting on the porch on this moisty afternoon, I could see rain drops plopping circle-perfect into awaiting puddles. I watched for at least a half an hour, ad-free.

Rain drops do not insult the intelligence.


  1. They don't challenge intelligence either.

    Just watching, as you suggest, makes for a nice restorative break in doing this or that.

  2. Oh, I so agree with you. I'd, any day, prefer watching the rain drops than the Idiot Box.
    It's sad so many are robbed of their life under its spell. Thankfully am not its fan.
