Is anything happening here?

It's more peaceful to be able to see that something is happening here even when what is happening is happening quietly and slowly.

If I can't see that what is happening is in fact happening, I might feel that USA drive to make something happen.

Making something happen might interrupt very fine things that are already happening.

Making something happen might create consequences unnecessary at best, or icky.

Will Durant wrote with Ariel Durant a multi-volume history of the world. One thing he learned from that was, "Nothing is often a good thing to do and always a good thing to say."

Happenings are happening always. I can quitely cheer and pray for the best.
