Finally….rain!!!! I snapped these pics about an hour ago after it had stopped raining. It was a pitiful rain, and I thought, “that’s it”?. We need a good long rain here, and now I’m typing this as a thunderstorm is brewing, and a steady rain is falling. Perfect.
“Around us, life bursts with miracles–a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”Thich Nhat Hanh
