Perspective

The trees are crying today. At least looking through a rain-drenched window makes it appear that way. Our perspective always colors our reality. Monday #beautynearme

RV Rain

RV rain is similar to “front porch” rain. It’s the rain that invites you. It asks you to sit and listen for awhile. (More windows per sq feet of space in the RV commands me to take in this subtle but powerful”show”.) I watch and hear the drops hitting the roof. It’s loud; thunderously loud. Even though the…

Receiving Days

  The drizzling rain is so comforting. Some days are more like “receiving days”, don’t you think? We didn’t have to think about how to get the water from there to here and what the ocean currents and winds needed to do, or how the clouds would carry it. It just arrived like an unexpected,…

Summer Storm

There is something soothing about a summer rainstorm. The warmth of the air as it joins the cool water drops emit a very distinct earthy aroma. The dark clouds contrast the sliver of blue sky that remains. It looks like the mountains are welcoming the drink. It feels like we are receiving just exactly what…

Melancholy Turned Sweet

~~~~~~~~~~~~ This mist over the mountain directed the way Droplets danced and the tin roof played Wrapped in you, melancholy turned sweet As rain fell in rhythm to two heartbeats Dreary is only  dreary when feeling alone With you, rain is heaven, in gray-blue tones ~~~~~~~~~~~    

Feel. Cry. Accept. Breathe. Be.

The power and swell is larger than me. The process of drenching, filling and seeping as it comes into me and then the movement out of me is like a ritualistic,…

Entangled Senses

Have you ever felt the coming scent of rain? Occasionally, there is a split-second that senses almost overlap. Today this happened when I saw the sky. maybe it’s what we call a premonition? The scent of rain was a vision in my mind before it was actually there. Then the moment came when the rain was actually…

The Gifts of Rain and Darkness

This quote embodies the essence of what I think hope brings. “When it rains look for rainbows, when it’s dark look for stars.” It allows you to have eyes for the beautiful. In the midst of the obstacle (if you have hope), you will look for the hidden truth, the gem that’s just beyond the…

“This Person Makes Frequent Stops”

I should probably wear a sign that reads , “This Person Makes Frequent Stops” like the big trucks and buses on the road.  I find myself so mesmerized by so many things.  I just have to stop to soak it in fully The sun’s rays through the clouds, sunsets and rainbows, flowers and pretty colored…
