We’ve had a strange weather pattern in my area all week, with very hot midday sun followed by clouds and thunder in the afternoon, but no rain at all. It has me feeling jumpy, as if something is about to burst.

The power went off this afternoon for about a half-hour, interrupting both my work and my husband’s work, although it didn’t look like there were any storms nearby. I wish the rain would pour down in buckets and get it over with! But, as that doesn’t seem to be happening, I am reminding myself to just breathe, to be present in the here and now, and to enjoy the clear moonlit nights.

Word-art with a bird, the moon, and words like "Observe" and "Breathe."

  1. Here the same! The clouds and thunders come but now the rain, it’s like the weather is pregnant waiting for the right time to pour out!

    • Yes, and more of the same again today, I just heard thunder. It definitely feels like it’s about to rain very large litters of cats and dogs 🙂
