Listening To Things Going Bump In The Night

A Windy Night With Gusts Of Wind Banging, Clanging And Going Bump In The Night Windy days have never been my favorite. It has been blowing steadily for a couple of days and nights. I hear the train whistle off in the distance. Always a calming sound to me. Our senses pick up more than we’re completely aware of on a daily basis. We may depend upon one more than the others. You’ve heard how people with vision problems have a keen sense of hearing. Or those with hearing problems develop better visual acuity. So do we depend primarily...

Thankfully Looking Ahead

Do You Count Your Blessings Daily? Are you truly thankful for your many blessings? Is this a thought that comes around only during Thanksgiving? There’s plenty of negativity around us.

Thunder, Lightning, Rain In The Early Morning Hours

I’m always amazed when the weather commentator gets it right. It was right on schedule, just past midnight. The thunder rumbled and roared. A bright flash of lightning and the tap, tap, tapping of the rain on the roof. This weather pattern will remain in place through the week and maybe the weekend or clear up. I’m sure it is all subject to change. The thunder is still grumbling and rumbling. The rain has stopped and I’m not near a window to see the lightning. That’s fine with me.
