DARK AND STORMY NIGHT WITH ALMOST FULL MOON

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate the completion of this birthday on a dark and stormy night with the almost full moon. The Cottage Doors are closed. There is a Palmer spider out the back wanting to come in out of the cold and wind. The Star Wagon ain’t going no place till the driveway dries out a little. The Girls are making Phone calls to say Happy Birthday and Plan visits in May. They consider the pulse of the life lived on The Hill and the passing of the years. Some birthdays are MELLOW.

A true man does not need to romance a different girl every night, a true man romances the same girl for the rest of her life.

Someday I would like to
stand on the moon, look
down through a quarter of a
million miles of space and
say, “There certainly is a
beautiful earth out tonight.”
– Lt. Col. William H. Rankin, American author

An autumn night… don’t think your life, didn’t matter.
Basho

Better to sit all night than to go to bed with a dragon.

I pray the gentle hands may guide my feet; I ask for kind commands from
voices sweet; At night a stable warm with scented hay, where, safe from
every harm, I’ll sleep till day.


“If you play with the vultures at night, you can’t soar with the eagles at dawn.”

I love thee – I love thee,

‘Tis all that I can say

It is my vision in the night,

My dreaming in the day.

~Thomas Hood

A BIRTHDAY AT HOME IN THE RAIN

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate THE day of Rain and fogs and rising Valley mists. Of Phone Calls from Daughters and curries for dinner. They consider the Grand Blessings of Home and Good Dwelling People. Of Music and Motels and Wineries and Good food. There are some excellent ways to spend birthdays. Late in bed in the Morning and Happily Partnered.

Some people are making such thorough plans
for rainy days that they aren’t enjoying today’s sunshine.
– William Feather

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

The itsy bitsy spider (or The eensy weensy spider)
climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain
and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
and dried up all the rain.
And the itsy bitsy spider (or eensy weensy spider)
climbed up the spout again.

You have to have lots of rain before you can have your rainbow!

This is the truth as I see it, my dear, Out in the wind and the rain: They who have nothing have little to fear, Nothing to lose or to gain.
Madison Julius Cawein

Rain falls for centuries
Soaking the loose rocks in space
Sweet rain, the fire’s out
The black snag glistens in the rain
& the last wisp of smoke floats up

(Gary Snyder (b. 1930), U.S. poet. Burning

IZZY’S BIRTHDAY

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate A BIRTHDAY spent at home in the rain. Wild and cold and near flooding with trenches to be dug and not a pair of gumboots between them. They ache in their waters for the gifts that they would like to be able to give.The vortexual stocking fillers. Hold hands. Dive into deeper and far darker waters. Somewhere below the surface is the essence of a BIRTHDAY at home in the rain.

How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and
height my soul can reach.

Happy Birthday, my Darling

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

====

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be.

Happy Birthday, my Darling

Robert Browning (1812-1889)

You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake. – Bob Hope

We advance in years somewhat in the manner of an invading army in a barren land; the age that we have reached, as the saying goes, we but hold with an outpost, and still keep open communications with the extreme rear and first beginnings of the march.

Chronologically gifted!

59! I demand a recount.

Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again.” Menachem Mendel Schneerson

Middle age is when you’ve met so many people that every new person you meet reminds you of someone else.” Ogden Nash

RAINING STILL

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life. They contemplate the ongoing Summer Rain in Brisbane and the Star Wagon which can only start with a hammer and stick like the old days of cranking the engine up. Lizzy will be taking buses along Coronation Drive to kick the engine over when Izzy hits it with the hammer with the orange handle. That means the red umbrella and the almost certainty of getting wet as the rain just continues to DRIZZLE. Don’t matter . Its SUMMER RAIN.

Mountain fruit drop in the rain
and grass insects sing under my oil lamp.
White hair, after all, can never change
as yellow gold cannot be created.
If you want to know how to get rid
of age, its sickness, study nonbeing.

– Wang Wei, 699-761

I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing! ~Edna Dean Proctor, “Easter Bells”

 

BB CANNON

Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.

I rebuke the wind and revile the rain,
I do not know the Buddhas and patriarchs;
My single activity turns in the twinkling of an eye,
Swifter even than a lightning flash.

And the itsy bitsy spider (or eensy weensy spider)

SUMMER RAIN

Been raining all summer. Now Lizzy is back in Brisbane and its raining still.Kind of not even rain. Its just 100% humidity and the water is dropping . Dripping.

Costa Rica

“Imagine studying in a tropical rain forest, at a beach in an absolute reserve, and in a cloud forest! The learning curve was tremendous, and so much was accomplished in 4 weeks. The educational opportunities were excellent and challenging! Faculty were extremely knowledgeable in a wide range of disciplines.” — Costa Rica Ecology Program – Maymester (San Luis de Monteverde, Costa Rica)

Quotes About HAARP

“Hurricanes and tropical storms have ravaged the Caribbean. Central Asia and the Middle East are afflicted by drought. West Africa is facing the biggest swarm of locusts in more than a decade. Four destructive hurricanes and a tropical rain storm Alex, Ivan, Frances, Charley and Jeanne have occurred in a sequence, within a short period of time. Unprecedented in hurricane history in the Caribbean, the island of Grenada was completely devastated: 37 people died and roughly two-thirds of the island’s 100,000 inhabitants have been left homeless; in Haiti, more than two thousand people have died and tens of thousands are homeless. The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba, the Bahamas and Florida have also been devastated. In the US, the damage in several Southern states including Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and the Carolinas is the highest in US history.”

I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains. One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge, but one misses a world of loveliness. ~Adeline Knapp

Everywhere water is a thing of beauty gleaming in the dewdrop,
