Air and Stone by DragonwolfRooke Air and Stone by DragonwolfRooke
Just a thought I had recently.

We see so much evil in the world. The news, the governments, even our day to day interactions. There's so MUCH of it, that sometimes it seems overwhelming. It never seems to go away, and it fills our vision, like great dark mountains blotting out the sky.

But good...it's like air. It's everywhere, but we can't see it. We feel it. Little things like opening the door for strangers, smiling at one another, doing good deeds, being good people. It's quiet and soft and hard to see. But there's so much more of it than the evil. It fills the whole world, like the volume of air all around those mountains. And when we go without it, we suddenly notice its importance again, like holding your breath.

So when those mountains seem especially dark...think outside of them. Think of the air.


Art (c) me, don't steal.

Good is everpresent, but intangible.
Evil is tangible, but ultimately fleeting.
I like it Rooke. Very telling of your perspective if I do say, and I am happy you see the world in such a light.
