Sun and rain and sun.

Yesterday was warm and sunny. Then it rained. Heavily. This is the view from where I was sitting on the deck and it was pouring down at the time. Today is warm and sunny again; and this morning was beautiful, cool enough to go out into my neglected garden and do some weeding.

Happy Labour Day to us all and forgive the trivia when so much is happening in the world. But at times like these, I feel I should be especially grateful for ordinariness and for the daily trivia of life.

This week, I am lighting a candle every evening for Japan.
