fragments from Neruda'
The wind is a horse
hear how he runs
through the sea, through the sky.
He wants to take me: listen...
Hide me in your arms
just for this night,
while the rain breaks
against sea and earth
its innumerable mouth.
The wind has been at my house, whistling. Gale force, and tornado warnings, a week of rain then deluge downpours. All around the earth is saturated. I am saturated.
If i never see another drop of rain again... ahh it is raining now.
Some got more rain in three days than recorded since 1871.
People were kayaking in the streets. Some flooded, some hydroplaned into rivers, lives lost. Sun isn't coming back till late Wed or Thursday. I am wanting to move to Sedona Arizona again.
Are You missing a cup of rain?

My lovely Grandmother turns 90 this week. Promised to record her life stories. That should be fun (it will take time, given a life that long, to get her into different aspects of memory).
Hope you are all well and not soggy in the bottom... though i didn't get around much, some amazing and delightful blog posts the past few weeks, it was really enjoyable. Thank you!

Old Cartoon about good Karma (I think) One kindness makes so many others, one coldness, stretches out into other troubles. We never know. Then compassion.
Peace to all who enter here
