The Runaway

     I have a some new pieces I have been working on recently. Not sure where the idea came from, but I wanted to include a touch of Spring, and some girly-ness...but not TOO much.

     I grew up with the saying that "April showers bring May flowers". Sometimes you need to wait through the tough stuff to get the greatness at the end. Delayed satisfaction, if you will. I don't mean to say this in relation to the little narrative...just a thought that went through my head as I made these.

     In the case of my narrative, sometimes things aren't as bad as they seem. California officially declared a drought recently. I can't remember the last time we had a good rain, let alone a rainy season. Our Winter felt like Summer and Spring is already shaping up to feel like an even hotter Summer. Sometimes life needs some variety, you know? But then I see the news and how the entire rest of the country is buried under snow, and all the terrible things that come with that. And I realize that heat isn't all that bad really...

     So until the next real rain, I will get lost in my own rainy world that I created for Frances (that's what my husband named the little girl) and find joy in that.

     Happy Easter, Happy Spring, and enjoy the May flowers to come.
