Morning Thoughts--Rainy Season
Last night's sunset was beautiful and as I was sitting on my deck watching the colors change, I was happy to be living in Ajijic. Sometimes I am not happy; when it is so humid that I get wet just from walking down the street, or when the rains come and I have forgotten my umbrella, or when my bedroom window leaks, or I am stuck in the house all morning or afternoon because of the gloomy weather. Last but not least, my body aches in all the places that have been broken when it is damp.
I prefer the dry season. I like being dry unless I am swimming or taking a bath. But we need the rain. The lake needs the rain. The flowers need the rain. I can go somewhere else during this time of the year if I get too unhappy. I am never unhappy enough to want to move back to the States or to any other area in the world. It is just that I am spoiled with all the beautiful weather we have during the rest of the year.
It is spectacular to watch the storm clouds rolling across the lake and hearing the thunder and having the house rattle with it and watching the flashes of lightening. Then is when I am grateful not to be living in my tree house where I was afraid of being electrocuted in my outdoor kitchen during the rainy season. I am safe in this new place. That counts for more than living in the beauty of the trees.
For now I can write when it is wet and overcast outside. It was seven months of having my computer mostly at the repair shop and maybe it will break again soon. I am going to Portland July 19th and I bought a new I Pad through E bay. It is waiting for me there. I will be able to put photos on that one and use it instead of this old, unreliable computer for writing on my blog. I will be there about a month.
While I am there, I will have another gathering at Walter Mitty's for people interested in Ajijic. I may even have two meetings. Now I have friends that I see in Portland and then I see them again down here. It has become a real international community of like-minded people. I can thank my blog for creating it and bringing so many wonderful people into my life. I feel blessed, rainy season or dry season, I feel blessed.
