already standing on the ground
These are the days I long for all winter. The hottest days of summer. They get so hot that the heat brings on these storms. We had torrential rain fall today. Flooding rain. Huge puddles. Then it stopped and the sun came out and it all dried up. Now the vapor is being held in the sky above me and its bound to fall tomorrow and the next day and continue to the end of the week. This process of build up and release. Intense heat relieved by intense rain resulting in a clean, clear, renewed air and ground. It's great. You will NEVER hear me complain about the heat. I think it is one of the most cleansing experiences. I can submit to the heat. Revel in it. I love going out in the summer rains. I can't do that with the cold. You have to be on your guard with cold weather. Never trusting it fully since it can get the best of you if you are not prepared for it. But this, this time right now always helps me to be present and still. Even in myself.
