It was about 3:00 last night when the rain began. About 6:00 it was still coming down, and drug me out of bed. Coffee, some fresh air and it was a new day. A rainy day to be sure, but a new day. It rained until mid afternoon.
By the time it stopped cabin fever had taken hold and I needed to get out, and walk in the air, and see the sky, even if it was filled with clouds that it seemed only feet above our heads.
We went to the local park, and it was almost
ominous, and a little otherworldly. Branches so green and heavy with moisture they hung low and menacing over the trails. The trees closed in on the path, and added to the bizarre aspect of the day.
It was beautiful, but odd. Our little creek that dissects the little park was swollen, and spilling over the banks, and looked like a wild river. There was even a small whirlpool that really seemed odd and had no clear explanation.
We did not stay long, it was thick and the air was close. It was good to get out of the house, and the exercise it had been a lazy, slow day with little activity.

A day of rain, followed by a little time in the park.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
