the rainy season

“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes.) It looks like today begins the season for rain. It’s very timely for me. I just transplanted some things yesterday and did not have a chance to water them. The rain took care of that for me. There are so many good things about rain, and I’m sure the people in drought stricken areas will agree. Even here in the Pacific Northwest, where we sometimes grouse about the incessant winter rains, we know it is the rain that provides us with so much beauty and lushness. Every time I hear the rain on the roof, I remember a song from my childhood —Showers of Blessing. They are indeed showers of blessing and I welcome them.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
