Cool Rain

Rain is hitting the tin roof of the house and all else is quiet.  Cars aren’t going up and down the road very much.  Birds are singing joyfully as if they are giving thanks for the rain.  The dogs are circled around me dozing, contented.

This is a good day.

Last night I wasn’t very sleepy so I went to work.  Writing between 10:30 PM and 3:30-4:00 AM is a magical time to write.  The house is quiet.  Most of the day concerns are settled or put to the side until the next one and the mind is freer to be creative.  No wonder Emily Dickenson loved to write around three o’clock in the morning!

About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
