Rainy morning with a bit of rambling…
This morning is starting out lazy and peaceful. I am content as I sit in the room I use as a studio space/study. Outside the rain is really coming down. Today’s forecast calls for a significant chance of thunderstorms. I’m hoping we get at least one good storm today. I enjoy a nice spring thunderstorm, the sound of rolling thunder is somehow comforting to me. I guess it is a reassuring reminder of how small and helpless we really are. Perhaps that may sound like an odd thing to say, but I’m glad we are still at the mercy of nature. That’s the way it is intended to be.
In this room is where I typically start and end each day. It is located on the far end of our house and therefore, somewhat sheltered from distractions such as TV, an enthusiastic child, etc. I spend a lot of time here throughout the week. I do all my drawing at the drafting table to the left, edit photos and compose blog post at the desk to the right. You can’t tell in the photo, but, the window offers a view of our backyard which becomes dense woods once you reach its limits.
The rain has slacked off a bit now and I can hear the song a single bird. The sky is still threatening and I believe this break in the rainfall is only temporary. More birds are joining in now and their interim concert is starting.
I plan to begin and new sketch this afternoon, for now, I am content just to sit here for a while and ponder about life.
Thanks for viewing, I hope everyone has a creative & wonderful day. – Mike
