Through the rain



It has been raining for several days, with rain in the forecast for the next few days as well. I'm just ignoring the "wintry mix" aspect of the forecast until I actually encounter it. The frequency of rain in October is a familiar thing, but all of this rain is probably why I think of October as the month of rainbows. As if there isn't enough color in the trees and burnished fields, a sudden golden light will spill through the clouds, casting rays of colored light on the sky. It is so beautiful that I wonder how everyone else can just go about their business-as-usual. I look up in wonder, catch my breath and soak the color into my being. I hope I can absorb enough color in this bountiful month to hold me through gray November and the bleak white months that follow.


Where ever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you color and beauty.

Not so gray here today but pretty cool and I've mostly stayed inside reading Dan Brown's " The Lost Symbol". It has me captive. Hope your day was pleasant.

I had a good day. Not very productive. Read a little while I waited for my daughter to get off work (I was her ride.)

Thank you for visiting!

We had lots of rain yesterday. But today we have some lazy fall sunshine.

Mary Anne, Lazy fall sunshine sounds wonderful! We are still cloudy and gray here today. I'm still trying to convince myself to get out and take a walk. lol! Thank you for visiting!
