Outsized and Inappropriate Happiness

I don't know what snapped in me but ducking this last bullet has turned me into a regular Mary Sunshine. The wind's picking up here, the rain falls for a while and then stops. I love this weather. You're close to a miniscus that broken would be troubles but you don't have the problems and get to see beauty.

Tonight I'll wrap myself in a blanket, go out in the weather and look up at the sky, stand in the wind, offer thanks for the break to whomever was waiting for them.

Last night I saw a vid that Tego (Theresa Maggio, Bratt photog) shot of some woodland waterways in June. Exquisite. Just friggin exquisite

And in the spirit of Halloween, Eddie Money and Lita Ford make dinner and then sing on "Rock Star Dinner"

I think you spell that outsized happiness RELIEF. I'm so friggin' glad you didn't have to be evacuated. Once was enough.

I guess you're right! When that boulder on yr shoulder rolls off you feel very light indeed!
And I never want to go thru that again!

I hope that you are not one of the sixty million people who are effected by the storm.

Happiness, relief, downright ecstacy - who cares what it is called, just roll in it.
That video of the Vermont waterways was particularly beautiful because it doesn't feature people. I get quite hissy when beautiful spots in the globe supposedly need beautiful people to 'sell them'.
Stay warm, stay safe, stay dry...

Munir- this time we were bulletproof. :)
Not so for many, many others.

EC- isn't that just gorgeous? I hate those vids of people frolicking in nature. Just the nature on its own, thank you. I've seen enough of people. Never enough of nature.
