Brown and Dried

Crazy strange weather.  We are in a drought, with forest fires all around us, and those east of us will be hammered by wind and rain for the next few days.  One of my friends at work looked at me today and said he wished it would rain for five days here and I agreed.  Everything is so sad and wilted.  There is so little color, just brown and dried.

I have smelled so much smoke the past couple of days that my head is throbbing.  Maybe in a few weeks the rains will come here.

On a happy note, we are playing at a drum circle this weekend for charity.  I know it will be so much fun.  We are really looking forward to it.

If you are in the storm's path, prayers of safety for you and yours.  And for all of you tonight, blessings of peace and joy.

  1. We have rain only in winter, and even then, not always. We've learnt to live with what we have, but the thing is the weather is becoming more and more anomalous. The last winters were very cold and rainy which is not typical of our area. It did a lot of damage to agriculture and we had to import tomatoes ,potatoes and other basic veggies.

    Regarding the fire, and the hurricane, my mother used to say 'never live close to a water or a forest' To that I would add a volcano and a nuclear plant.But the bottom line is that only God can protect us wherever we are.
