"Whatever you think you can do, or believe you can do, begin it, because action has magic, grace, and power in it." Goethe

Take Your Time

It was 75 and sunny at noon, but it’s 8 pm now and in the 40s. This is Texas.
The rains came as promised, loud and strong. A hailstorm a few streets over damaged all of the high school teachers’ cars. No hail here. Funny how that works.
My husband and I sat on our back porch and watched a duck fly in, watched the downpours as they came one after another, watched the pond filling up.
I wrote last July about a drought. We are still technically in one, but today’s rain helped.
I was home early to fry chicken, to play cards, to sit on this back porch. That’s another something I wrote about last July. These days are fleeting, dear readers.
Don’t wait too long to enjoy them. Listen to the rain. Hold your lover’s hand. Take your time.
Take your time.

I write. Make art. And in between, I do the best I can. ✌🏼️
