Weathering the Storm


While some parts of Europe are sweltering

in a Luciferian Summer

our little section of the continent

is experiencing regular elemental outbursts

of the thunder, lightning and torrential rain variety

during one of these

our barn was flooded


it was rather beautiful to behold

if you can pause to see the poetry of life

when the storm hits

and appreciate the natural philosophy

of what the storm leaves in its wake

luckily everything stored inside of the barn is raised up on palettes

because this isn’t an unusual occurrence

there are better solutions

but for now our focus is on the house

there’s nothing like a flash flood

and the canny ability of water to penetrate

the slightest crack in your building and its foundations

to let you know where something needs your attention

where a fix may need to be applied

where time isn’t healing an old wound but causing a new one

Thursday I was DIY solving one of these

and today I spotted a crack in a window pane which I could swear wasn’t there yesterday…


“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous.”

― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
