The calm before the storm. The air is the sweetest, the wind is cool and perfect – in the calm before the storm. The moments are bright and seemingly pure, you smile, not knowing the sky is about to open up and pour down.

I received one of those phone calls this morning. The – you need to sit down – kind of phone calls. Where you want to be able to be right next to your friend or family member, holding a hand, giving support – in person, but you can’t unless someone wants to invent a matter transporter device on the spot.
I’m watching the summer rain make everything seem greener, lusher – hearing the rain and thunder.
Although I love those pure sweet moments in the calm before the storm – I am still, as always, inspired by the rain.
Even amidst the storm, I find comfort in the rain. I have always loved to hear the rain while I’m inside. I love the rumble of the thunder, rolling across the sky.
We seek problems, because we need their solutions. Richard Bach said that in his book Illusions – albeit in slightly different words. Now that I am older, I am beginning to understand that in so many ways.
We stray from our path of learning, sometimes stumbling and falling, trying to find which direction to go.
To me, the rain is calming, steadying, as the ground beneath my feet. Sometimes shifting – but know that we can always find our feet, sometimes we have just have to try a little harder.
To me, the rain can be cleansing. Making it easier to pull the weeds from the now soft ground.
The air is sweeter, cooler, after the rain. Mother Nature has thrown her temper tantrum, and is ready to behave again. Take a deep breath. Know that your direction, your solution, is in front of you.
