weather




The weather in my home city is frigid - frosty - frozen - blizzarding etc. The very same storm front has arrived here in my town in Kentucky and it is dark and cold and rainy.

I was thinking today how the same weather system can present itself differently in various lives. Depending on other factors, a loss or defeat might be crushing or fairly easy to move on from.

A serious goal of mine is to make choices that intentionally move me toward gentleness in my responses and reactions. Using the weather analogy, I want to be a kind of person whose presence decreases the possibility of a storm showing up at it's worst.

But my blizzard today is inside my head in the form of migraine pain. I pace around trying to find a place or space to relieve it. There is something to learn from that as well...

I was looking for a headache image and found this - just had to add it because today is such a blue day ...

Please tell me about the emails you get about that picture! Ha! And today's weather is TERRIBLE! When an Oregonian complains about the rain, that's not a good sign. Gross. That's what I have to say about today's weather. Gross.
