Is this summer?

Wind chimes singing, sky heavy with gray clouds, cool air fragrant with the scent of rain-soaked creosote bushes somewhere outside the city limits.

Doesn't sound much like May in Arizona, does it?

Just when we thought we were thoroughly in the grips of summer's oppressive heat, we are granted a lovely respite. Again, rain reminds me of grace.

Today is full - quoting for a t-shirt order, revising a web page, brainstorming marketing strategies and more. So I'm posting late and not posting the summer-themed post I'd planned. But it doesn't really feel like summer. And it does feel like a good day to contemplate rain and beauty and grace.

...I go to find the post where I talk about rain and grace and realize it was just this time of year. Maybe I shouldn't be so surprised at rain (or grace). Just thankful.

Photos by me. Taken just a few minutes ago.


  1. A little rain is always welcomed to balance the heat of the summer. Over here in Singapore, it was raining cats and dogs in the evening too. We very much welcome the rain as the weather has been pretty hot for the past days.

  2. rain and grace. i don't often enough express my gratitude for either.

  3. BK: I'm glad you're getting a break from the heat too!


What do you have to say about that?
