Adaptation

“Looking back, you realize that a very special person passed briefly through your life. That person was you. It is not too late to become that person again.” – Unknown

Adaptation. Interesting word. Means many things. Is used often in discussions of evolution. All life forms adapting to the environment. Evolution.

So if we force our environment to adapt to our needs, are we evolving or are we executing?

Once upon a time, in a land far away known as Bedford, TX, we lived in a brick and mortar house. Life was good. Nature was forced to adapt to our desires.

That was then.

This is now.

We are gate guards and this is our front yard. While control of our environment has not been completely abdicated, we are sort of at the mercy and caprice of our surroundings.

This is fact. We are in the adaptation mode.

    The weather in South Texas can be capricious with 50 degree temperature swings and occasional gale force winds. Add in hail the size of softballs and it can even be intimidating. Peace of mind is fleeting when you have to endure that in an RV and have no avenue of escape. Best case scenario (along with prayer) is to insure your and your RV heavily. BTW while I don’t disagree with you, I truly believe that special person in my life was my grandfather.
