a cold november rain falls endlessly outside my window tonight. but, i’m safe & warm inside. the candlelight flickers and glows. my family is close by. is there anyone luckier than me? 

“Now and then sprays of rain flew over and misted our faces. Every time I refused to wipe away the wetness. It made the world seem so alive to me. I couldn’t help but envy the way a good storm got everyone’s attention.”
― Sue Monk KiddThe Secret Life of Bees

“I want to believe that I’m not wrong. I want to believe that life isn’t full of darkness. Even if storms come to pass, the sun will shine again. No matter how painful and hard the rain may beat down on me.”
― Natsuki Takaya

“Oh, come forth into the storm and rout
And be my love in the rain.”
― Robert Frost

“Why the Egyptian, Arabic, Abyssinian, Choctaw? Well, what tongue does the wind talk? What nationality is a storm? What country do rains come from? What color is lightning? Where does thunder goe when it dies?”
― Ray BradburySomething Wicked This Way Comes

“The unwelcome November rain had perversely stolen the day’s last hour and pawned it with that ancient fence, the night.”
― F. Scott FitzgeraldThis Side of Paradise

“Folds of scarlet drapery shut in my view to the right hand; to the left were the clear panes of glass, protecting, but not separating me from the drear November day. At intervals, while turning over the leaves of my book, I studied the aspect of that winter afternoon. Afar, it offered a pale blank of mist and cloud; near a scene of wet lawn and storm-beat shrub, with ceaseless rain sweeping away wildly before a long and lamentable blast.”
― Charlotte BrontëJane Eyre

“That was the way it was that beautiful evening of cold November rain and muddy country roads and crazy windshield wipers. That was the moment of my greatest security and confidence; it was the time when I realized that love makes one a better person, a kinder gentler one.”
― Irene HuntUp a Road Slowly

peace while the rain patters down.

    Ironically, as we in Western Australia approach our driest, hottest time of the year, I awoke this morning to an impending storm! As I read this, the wind is whipping the palm trees & the sky over the Indian Ocean is beginning to darken.

    As a Florida native in the heart of the hurricane belt, I always loved a good storm (especially lightening across a dark & cloudy sky). Great post, Liz. 🙂

      i know exactly what you mean. i love a really good thunder & lightening storm actually. here in sweden, we have rain storms & snow storms, but it is rare that i hear thunder or see lightening. i miss that.

      happy summer time to you!
