So many things to write about, like the raindrops on the window, which one to follow on its slow journey to the sill? The storm promised on yesterday’s news has arrived this morning, but it is a gentle rain, and even now blue sky comes tentatively from the east. New Mexico is like that. Bad weather which is good weather here (we need the rain) comes and goes quickly followed by long periods of intense sun making colors so bright that you gasp with delight. I have a lunch scheduled with a friend today. It is my turn to drive and choose the restaurant. What a dilemma! The weather changes my plans. At this instant the sun is winning out, so I am scanning my brain for an eatery that is near walking trails instead of a shopping mall.
