A Monday meander: Rainy days and hurricanes

A rainy day moment.

Here is a moment of extravagant beauty: I drink its liquid from the shells of my hands and almost all of it runs sparkling through my fingers: but beauty is like that, it is a fraction of a second, quickness of a flash and then immediately it escapes.

~ Clarice Lispector, A Breath of Life

~ Jeanette Winterson

Baby loblollies rising up above the periwinkles.  (Or maybe they are spindly spaceships floating among a sea of blue stars.)

Sometimes the soul takes pictures of things it has wished for, but never seen.

~ Anne Sexton
