Today is a day to make Noah happy.  The ducks are rejoicing along with the geese.  There are night crawlers reveling in the streets and turtles with their eyes to the Heavens. The protesters are all holed up, hiding in their little dark rooms having to wallow in the mire of their discontent.  Good riddance, I say, it’s a beautiful day.  A deluge, tranquillity blessed in a chair on the porch with the rain like Angel’s singing.  A glorious day to wring your thoughts.  Glory to the storm.  Glory to love and my beautiful wife.  I am happy.  I am present and content with the rain.
