Years ago – I have no exact date –

I realized that God did not make straight lines in His vast (how weak a word) creation. No species of animals of whom I am aware are straight. Some plants, especially giant trees, approach purely vertical lines but do not go there. Creeks and rivers, lake edges and sea shores are known for, and loved for, graceful curves. Clouds: white fleece or thunderheads are lacking in straight lines. Alas, the only Being capable of making perfect parallel or perfect perpendicular lines chose not to. Except – – – except the perfect straightness of a sea/sky horizon. (It is not called “sea level” for nothing.) All pics (excluding fish-eye lenses) show God’s one and only perfectly straight line.
