Finally after 72 days without rain - and drought conditions in our south west corner of Western Australia - during last night we heard rain on the roof! What a sweet sound it was. Throughout the day we had showers, interspersed with sunny skys. It has been a long hot dry summer and the rain has freshened everything. I ran outside with my camera this morning before work and took a few photos of the raindrops on my roses.
and in my lunch-hour I drove to the beach and sat in the car and watched the rain......
I picked up a little book of quotes, called "Enjoy the Journey", in a cafe in town today - here is one of them. We are going through a difficult time at the moment and this quote was a gentle reminder to cherish every moment - as it is all part of the "tissue" of life.
Life, we learn too late,
is in the living,
the tissue of every day and hour.
