It's getting a bit Biblical around here in the weather department. . . very easy to imagine 40 Days and 40 Nights of this grey, wet stuff, but who needs to imagine when we can simply look outside. And then look at the forecast for the next week. . . Although there is "a mix of sun and cloud" predicted, between the showers, for next Monday. . . Ah, Vancouver, so beautiful in the sunshine. . . I remember when. . .
In fact, we did have a few hours of weather joy on the weekend, and I took some photos to prove it.
Can I tell you that the car in the photo above is one I waited for, snapping photo after photo of this tree from various angles and with different depths of field (all managed by my iPhone camera, of course, so much hoping and wishing, from me). I missed the yellow cab which would have made the perfect background, in my estimation, but this flash of orange isn't bad....
And speaking of happiness. . . your supportive comments to Sunday's post made me very, very. Happy! I appreciate your support so much. So far this week I've managed a thousand words on that private writing project, incremental progress toward what, I'm not sure, but I'm trying to honour the process and have some confidence in myself.
Another cause for happiness was finding that, contrary to my disappointed belief that no one had responded to my invitation to chat about a poem (mentioned here, located here, there was actually a trove of responses hidden in plain sight on my Blogger Dashboard. You can read about the reasons for my misplaced disappointment, and my happy correction, in this post. And if you have any interest at all in poetry or are simply curious to sit what this blog community can do with it, check out the wealth of comments at that original post . . . and add yours, if you're so inspired. I'm going to write a bit more about the poem itself and the process of starting a conversation about it . . . soon, over at my reading blog.
For now, I've written this post, finished writing my Morning Pages, and now Pater and I are heading out for a first session with a fitness trainer. More on that later, if you're interested. For now, do leave me a comment if you're so motivated. And have a lovely day, or at least the best possible in your circumstances . . .
