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 have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.
