The rain is relentless here:
overflowing rivers, filled basements, moats around houses, swollen seas.

Like making lemonade out of lemons,
kids make fun puddles out of floods.
Might as well view it like a child...
or a duck.

Up on the Roof- stars are free

"When this old world starts a getting me down,
and people are just too much for me to face.
I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs and all my cares just drift right into space.
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be and there the world below don't bother me, no, no.
So when I come home feeling tired and beat, I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet.
I'll get far away from the hustling crowd and all the rat-race noise down in the street.
On the roof, that's the only place I know, look at the city, baby.
Where you just have to wish to make it so, let's go up on the roof.
And at night the stars, they put on a show for free.

...up on the roof, up on the roof, up on the roof.
Everything is all right, every thing is all right. You got the stars above and the city lights below, let's go up on the roof."
Song by Gerry Goffin & Carole King, sung by James Taylor

Travel memories: Spain, Spanish Shawl, black & gold

Web-like shawls hung in windows.
Fanned out like the fans that also hung.
Silks embroidered with flowers and birds.
Of every color in the rainbow.
Peach or aqua or purple or blue?
I chose flamenco black and gold.
