Mrs. Burton, is it raining? Mrs. Burton, look out the window. Look! Is it? Is it?
I had my back to the window and tried to move ahead with my lesson, but he wouldn't let it go. So finally I turned around and took a peek. No rain, but a murky sky with a luke-warm wind that was blowing the huge flag, in a half-hearted way. And I thought of my sometimes state-of-mind. Half commited to what needs to get done, but my mind elsewhere, often. Half blowing the flag.
Sometimes the best thing (often times the best thing) is a good storm. Clean out the air. Get the cool wind blowing.
So I had me a storm today. Rainy eyes. And I feel better now. :)
