'Evergreent'  17x35" oil pastel; Kathleen Faulkner

Lately I wonder if Spring will ever arrive.  Waiting for the late one:  I've always thought lateness a sign of rudeness

I wake to rain. 
Things have been intense lately..  friends on the skids,  politics, Japan. 
I need to be in the woods and the good news is that I have this day.  
I am grateful for the rain that offers what I need:
a cloak of invisibility, solitude and a feeling of softness not available on a sunny day. 

Someday, when the rest of the world has dried up and blown away, we will be thankful for this gift.
