|Sometimes called "flying saucer clouds"|
We are having our first storm of the rainy season here. Rainy season begins on October 1st. It has been crazy windy all day. I have no photographs to show you, but I did see a crow fluttering and flying in the high winds. It circled and flew; it circled and flapped and flew. I was glad to see it and be reminded of other lives in the face of adversity. I heard a Hermit Thrush the other day. Its song is so beautiful, it pulls your heart and makes you glad to be alive and in this bird's winter range.

We have a crazy man running for President here. It's true, in case you haven't turned the news on or read any newspapers or checked the internet. It is mind blowing to have such a person be so close to the White House. I almost can't believe it. How can such a thing be true? What does it say about our country's citizens? I would write about it, but time slips away and my mind wanders.
Next week there are doctor and dentist appointments everyday. We may be having our house roofed, but we're not sure. The roofer called more than a week ago to confirm the start date, but hasn't contacted us since about the particular shingles we requested. We should probably contact him, but time slips away.
Night arrives earlier and earlier these days. Soon we will play with time and turn the clocks back an hour. Such a funny trick we humans play with the sun. We are such silly creatures. I have so many things I want to write about like lenticular cloud formations, birefrigence, and swallowtails on teasel but time it does slip away.
