To my friends who are not pleased with the election results...
I'm inclined to remind you that every now and then, Nature decides it's time for a raging blaze.

Forrest fires are very destructive.
They really suck if you're a tree.

The fire is completely self-serving.
An omnivorous appetite swallowing everything in it's path until it runs out of fuel or is put out at great cost and peril.

It's blackened path seems like an alien landscape, dead dark and desolate.

But 5-10 years after the fire, you find new life, bright flowers, birds and bees renewing their environment.

Today it seems like we're the trees...
but I believe we are the birds and the bees.
