A virtual Democratic National Convention, virtual meetings, virtual classes. They have all become part of life during the pandemic. With near-drought conditions in many parts of the western United States, and smoky skies having replaced the cloudless blue skies and thunderstorms, I find myself thinking about rain. A lot. Our "monsoon" season has yet to develop. Although the Gulf Coast is going to receive much more rain than is needed, and Australia had snow this week, the firefighters and the land could certainly use some. If one can listen to the soothing sounds of light rain on a device, why not virtual rain on the screen of your choice? I have selected some images that remind me of rain, the first of which is a water droplet under an aspen branch.
A very wet hummingbird resting and getting warm
Hollyhock flower after a shower
The sky filled with the promise of rain
After the rain, a double rainbow
Thanks to all of you who persevered so well, and continue to keep in touch virtually, including Orlando, Carolyn S., Lisa, Ingrid, Wayne, TTT, Christina, Debra, Steve, Jean and Sam, and Donna C. I hope you are all able to record life as you know it with your cameras and other devices. This is an extraordinary time.
until next Monday,
