Katrina has a long reach! She's dumping rain on us in the Midwest. The rains that bring devastation on the East coast also bring life to the parched Midwestern land that has been in a drought.
As I sip my Royal Puerh (a smooth "cooked" puerh), I contemplate how Mother Nature has a pretty good cause for being upset with us! We continue to abuse our planet. I believe that while we think we're in control, nature can take back her authority at any moment. Let us never forget that we (humans) are merely one small part of this interdependent web of life.
