oh beautiful rain!
I remember it...remember
cool dampness and shivery
sprinkles on my skin
...and soft breezes
brushing back the
swelter.
mmmm...thanks for stirring
those sweet sighs:)

And my land has been a wet soggy cold mess for 3 weeks. The sun has come out for the second day now and all seems right with the world. Funny how we are tied to earth and stitched to atmosphere.

Oh what beautiful, wet photos. I understand you've had trip digit temperature for a number of weeks...and counting. I hope the parched land will soon receive nourishment and the heat will subside.
