The storm clouds built this morning and cast a gray pall over the cityscape that matched my mood. Building and darkening, threatening with gusts of wind blowing through the neighborhood, gathering bits of trash with it. Great, more leaks in the ceiling and black mold that I suspect is wearing a bit on my asthma. So, getting out got in the jeep to run errands. Picking up prints, picking up bits and pieces from my old office, banking, mail, you know the drill of things that keep you busy.
As I watched clothes dry, the storm blew through finally in spitting, hissing cat fights of rain and sunshine battling between each other for territorial space. Sunshine won and with it, the puddles revealed to me the japanese magnolia blooms and the buds of the bradford pear. I'll be damned if Phil wasn't wrong...or least he seems wrong this year.
On a different note, how did I not have Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give it up" on my iPod until today? I am seriously slacking. and....here are a couple from my archives that I posted today since I can't allow myself the time to go shooting.
