  1. I think these are beautiful, just beautiful!

    I do think that predicting rain counts just a little bit though! How do you know to build the ark if you don't do a little bit of predicting and preplanning? Planning is important! However, I think the author is trying to say that if you plan and don't take action (build the ark) all your plans are fruitless.

    Thank you for allowing me to be an armchair philosopher today, Valerie, LOL.
