Seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.

It rained today.  I told myself that I wasn't going to write again until it cooled down because I had nothing positive to say.  The heat and sunshine were making me feel the way your mouth feels after a trip to the dentist.  Your tongue is dry and numb and you can't wait for all the necessary sensations to come flooding back.  That's how I have felt lately.  It hasn't looked pretty, so I've been quite.

Today I stood in my backyard with an umbrella and watched rain water all my plants and I inhaled the smell of wet pavement and a cleansed soul.  Plus, I also saw a whole barrel of white pumpkins at Trader Joes today...my insides started to tingle.  I'm already excited for the first day I can wear my Virginia Johnson shawl around my neck for warmth (maybe November?), but for now....

Happy October.  I couldn't be happier you are here.
