forgiving humans

Been on the Colorado River for 2 weeks now. Didn’t mean to just ran out of money. Its good to be away from Tucson but the sun is still very hot here. We’re not quite outta the desert yet. The water is freezing so I’ve been laying on my back with my head and neck on the shoreline to keep my heat down. It doesn’t work for long. I’ve been getting up extra early because the sun doesn’t become really mean until about 9am. This morning I was sitting down on by the water enjoying the morning nature sounds and smells just a little after 7am a jet ski went by. The ducks went crazy the bugs all ran and I found myself angry for a second at the disruption of the peaceful moment. I was surprised by my anger. Why am I so forgiving of natural disruptions and not of humans. If the wind had pushed hard or the earth even shook I wouldn’t have gotten indignant. How is man any different? I can control him as much.   I let go of the anger and decided to let go of the jet skier who had passed a good 10 minutes ago and realized I lost 10 minutes of peace. silly huh?
