After the Rain

Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We are waiting here in Southeast Arizona for the advent of the monsoon. For now its all about what I've been told. Have not experienced yet the fantastic lightning nor the deluge of torrential rain which accompanies the monsoon. They say nearly six inches of rain falls during the monsoon season.

When it happens, I will head south to the grasslands of the San Rafael, Sonoita, and Patagonia where tall dry grasses will become green and dried up rivers will become flush with water and rush north to Tucson. The San Pedro and the Santa Cruz rivers will once again have water.

Suppose like nature, we too go through our dry spells shy of creativity perhaps even joy and laughter. The monsoons seem to come just in time to refresh and renew our parched souls. Looking forward to the rain.
