Rainy day in Auburn California

I live in a dreamy place surrounded by trees with an awe inspiring view of the Sierras. It is windy, rainy, and very powerful in my “tree house” today. At times the wind reaches 50 to 60 mph. The wonderful old trees bend as they have so many times before under the stress of these howling winds, never giving up their hold on life. The hawks and turkey vultures dance in the wind, still seeking their prey as they do everyday. The winds just help them to remain in one place longer to peruse the valley below. For me it is the perfect day to read Hemmingway or Kahlil Gibran. A perfect setting to doze off and create visions and thoughts for tomorrow and my other tomorrows. fjl
