An Extravagant Parade

"All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem."
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
We march forward with ungraceful steps like cattle unto a trough.
It is an awkward parade that in drought and rain knows not when to stop.
The further we go the faster the pace, and the more extravagant is the cost.
For in the parade of progress pieces of humanity can get lost.
This week I was not able to get on the internet this weekend, so I had a friend describe the picture to me on the phone. She did a wonderful job describing it to me, but somehow I visioned the man riding his bike in the desert heading to a neon lit phonebooth, and progress and its affects came to mind. So that is why I went with the progress parade. After actually seeing the picture this morning, I think I could have gone other directions with it, but like progress there is no turning back for me now. Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday. :-)
