MIAGD: Storms

MIAGD: make it a great day

The general sunny buoyancy that has appeared most mornings this past week is replaced by an anxious buoyancy as storms have been in Tissot paid for today.  The heavier breeze is cool, but comfortable, and the skies are leaden with steel-blue clouds.  

I’ve never like thunderstorms.  Mother was always calm when storms pounded, or when there were tornado warnings.  She’d calmly look out windows, or step onto the porch.  

At 51, I still feel an inner anxiousness that cannot be stilled.  Only when students are here, or when the sons were home, can I put up a brave, calm front.  

On with the day.  Twenty students will fill today, with three on vacation.  But, today is my Friday, and I have three days of writing, and adventures, awaiting me. 

And, I can hear some gentle tapping on the tent’s covering… the rain is moving in….

Make it a great day, Folks!
