When the weather is bright and sunny, as it is today, it seems like it will always be bright and sunny. On the other hand, when it’s been raining for a few days, it seems like it will always rain. For some reason, as human beings we are hardwired to project future trends based on the current reality. We’d rather believe that things will always stay the same, rather than the truth: things change, even if they’ve been static for a while.
I photographed this flower towards the tail end of the rain last week. Now the weather is warm, dry, and windy. My projection is that it will stay this way forever.
