Southern Rain

The storms are coming

“And it will never cease to amaze me how a little rain can drive folks crazy …” – Cowboy Junkies, Southern Rain

Spring in the South means new life – blossoms & blooms and violent storms. Warm fronts battling with cold fronts, spring pushing out the winter, and what do you get?

Tornado Alley

We’re right on the outskirts, but when you’re midway through a power outage and gusting winds with hail pounding the roof and lightning blowing up the sky and thunder rattling the windows, it doesn’t feel like we’re on the edge. It feels like we are right in the middle.

 And, it’s over

The winds stop blowing, the sun comes out or you can see the stars break through the night sky. It’s calm again and you notice the green buds on Dogwood trees and the warm air settles back in for a longer stay.

A storm of my own

I’m working on revisions and edits for Nelson and Cora, and I feel a storm scene brewing …

If you read Chopin’s “‘Cadian Ball“, you should read the sequel, “The Storm“.

About melindamcguirewrites

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. ------ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Speech, Stockholm, 1950

    Nice post. I know what you mean when you say you are in a storm. I’m in an editing storm.
