Rain again--

You know, it's raining again. I can't believe how significant this event has become-- to see the wind whipping the trees around, to walk outside and feel the coolish air on my arms and the warm, wet concrete under my feet...somehow, these things just sort of set my spirit free for a moment.

dry, hot summers in the south are heavy, dreamy things-- but beautiful, no matter what. still, it makes me sad to see our trees, drooping, exhausted, dying to take a dip in a lake. more rain, more rain-- thank you Jesus, but more rain...

But I wanted to share something else here-- a dear friend of mine got some good news about a patch of skin cancer on the bridge of her nose. My hypochondria is receding in the light of such serious reality.
