Here I am on a rainy spring night. Yes, it is really finally spring. Bing is confirming it. (I had to check) It’s one in the morning and I just had to type something. I should be picking a picture for Wordless Wednesday, but you are going to get two posts today.
There is something kind of magical about rain on a spring night. The freshness. The clean mountain air where I live. The silence that is far from silent. The air moves differently and you can feel the change.
Right now I’m reading Liz Dalby’s East Wind Melts the Ice. It’s a journal mixed with cultural and historical information of Japan. It takes the Japanese calendar and breaks it down into individual weekly essays. It’s incredibly fun to read, though I have yet to ever finish the book despite checking it out half a dozen times from the library. It’s one of those books that’s so good you don’t want to finish it. Ha ha, that is a really sad excuse, but it’s actually true. I’ve shied away from finishing it.
I am drinking a tepid cup of coffee, though it was hot a bit ago (black, no sugar) and I have Penny and Sparrow’s Ten Boom album playing. Penny and Sparrow are a new band I found after seeing a post by rainydaysandblankets a Tumblr blog. Her blog has got to be one of my most favorite to visit. I really should do a favorites of Tumblr’s blog post. There are some really great blogs out there. Anyways, Penny and Sparrow is a really amazing band of two guys. Check them out if you can. Quite impressive in the folk-slash-rock genre.
Well, now to see what to post for Wordless.
