Blessing or Curse?

Outside my kitchen window I am treated to the view of a beautiful tree which stays green all year round.

I know not everyone has the opportunity to see the wonder of nature right before their very own eyes like this tree treats me to day in and day out.

Which means not everyone is cursed by the pollen blowing in the wind while the pine cones do their thing.

Pretty much everything is coated with a fine layer of yellow pollen dust.

This makes having the windows open somewhat of a pain in my arse.

I like the cool breeze.

I don't like the pollen on the counters, the toaster, in the sink, on the floor. It gets everywhere and on every surface.

I like waking up each morning to see newly formed cones.

I don't like the baby formations flicking me off.

With all that being said, I am not sure this beautiful tree outside my window is a blessing or a curse.

For now there isn't much I can do other than continue to wipe and rinse things while watching the beauty with a sense of wonder to make the situation tolerable and enjoyable.

It is mind over matter right y'all?

Mind over matter.

Peace and Love Peeps.

Isn't that always the way of things? My mama would say "Mo, that's why this is earth and not the garden of eden."
