Why I Love This Time Of Year.
It's been pouring rain off and on all day up here. That's not something I usually enjoy. It reeks havoc on by my joints and generally creates a miserable situation.
Tonight the rain has been accompanied by the most tremendous wind gusts. Sitting here next to the open window, the wind sounds like a roaring tide. The heavy blackness of nightfall adds to the illusion.
There was a real temptation tonight to write at length about Detroit, and the lines of people waiting to get free stimulus money. But the wind changed my mind. Changed my whole mood actually. It's hard to get worked up over things when you're entranced by the siren's song of Michigan's fall weather.
