There's a big storm blowing our way, though you'd never know it right now. Torrential rain is coming from one direction, we're told, and torrential wind from the other. Waves are supposed to be 15 feet high on Sunday, and if I can figure out a way to paint them without being blown away, I will.

Sometimes, I think, I need a really big storm. I need something to come in, something bigger than me, something bigger than what is and what has been, something strong enough to blow everything away. There will be destruction and debris, but then, clear air and bright sun and the sense of a new beginning.
