The sky is blanketed with a film of washed out gray.  The hushed, soft drops of rain caress the wanting green.  They sound their landing with a tender, cushioned plop.  A candle flickers on the sill illuminating droplets and rendering them crystals.  Seemingly  forsaken, a willow weeps, her tendrils sway like golden feathers in the faint whisper of a muted breeze.  Brush bristle pine boughs sag and glisten, soused with tiny beads of wet sky.  The stillness paints a calm and directs the soul reticent.  Placidity is welcomed like a lover.  Arms open, heart brimming with sincerity and a conscience filled with utter contentment. 

This moment is the breath of simplicity and I am grateful.

That's the Nancy I know -- savoring the simple beauty and singing of its wonders.

Thank you friend.
