Lots of company this time of year. My brother-in-law had a cancer removed and needs no further chemo or anything--we are grateful for that. Hot hot hot hot humid humid too; too hot for even pool parties i refused. We were singing (ahh..) Baby its Cold outside to stay cool and watching this. :) Try it.

Last night got great storms (i love a storm) with high winds, hail and down-pours. The temp dropped some 30 degrees. Thank you Thank you. About 700 people lost their electricity. The trees, ohhh large branches put downward, bowing, twisting dancing shaking it out, then thrown back upward in multi-layered winds. A furious beautiful friction in the leaves. A bit like looking at giant masts on a huge multi-mast ship from inside the Captain-ess's glass enclosed quarters. Everything in view, a storm tossed sea in the sky. Sails of clustered leaves were bending at their masts in all compass directions. it was exhilerating !

I love youre Silences, so quiet.
And I love storms too - when I am at home and watch through the window.

the woman in photography looks interesting. As for storms, I'm not a big fan..im scared of the sound!

I think I'm also a bit scared of storms, even if it can be fascinating sometimes..
