Feels like it's raining all over the world.


Today it rained so hard we had a basement water problem. Like Brook Benton sang "feels like it's raining all over the world". Out on the sunporch I watched the rain and looked at magazines. The pooch hates to get his paws wet on walks in this mess. I find rain a cleansing experience even with the basement wettage. I am coming outa my funk a bit. Stocked up on wine today and have found recent;y as much as I love shiraz it gives me major esophageal reflux in bed. So I am back to white wine for evening sippings. I am doing alot of new art journal backgrounds for writings in the winter. Wonder if most artsy folks go thru such ups and downs as I do?

Joy; great post. Love your pooch! He looks so reflective looking out the window. We've been experiencing showers, here, on and off after our gorgeous two weeks of sun and cool temps. The rain kind of slows me down, a bit; dictates the day. We, too, get water in our basement, on and off, especially with the downpours! I hate that part! I see ups and downs as part of my life. I've come to accept this, in time; perhaps it's my age :) It's funny, too, that it seems when I'm in my down period, I'm most creative. Go figure, huh? I wouldn't fight the ups and downs - I know the downs aren't as comfortable as the ups. I would guess there are a lot of people, out there, that go through same.

Gee; I didn't mean to go on like this - sorry.

Best to you - Marilyn

We had our bout with rain about a month ago... now its full blown autumn. I'm with you on the white wine. It's nice to sit down and enjoy a glass and unwind. I'm just getting ready to begin a new journal too.

He looks so focussed, I wonder what he is thinking? And yes ups and downs are the rollercoaster of life... dont mind the smooth flat rides though..

It seems we do have a lot in common; red wine gives hives and I love white wine. But also, and as we have talked many times, the ups and downs seem to strike creative and sensitive people more than others. At least, that's the way I feel. When I am down, it's like I have been sucked into the depth of the earth's center. How do we climb up again? And more importantly, how do we stay up?! I wish I knew, my dear Joy.

I take the present opportunity to PUBLICLY apologize to you for not being there all this time. You have supported me so much and I am very grateful for all that you have done.
