Person generally interested in the simple mechanics, pleasures and management of a life of contentment and positive contributions without excess or complacency. I live in awe of God's creation and try not to be disheartened with what some are doing with their share of these gifts.
What we have can be wrestled from us with little notice and needs our watchfulness.

Not sure if 'anvil thunderheads' is a real meteorologic term, but we get much of our monsoon rain from these amazing cloud formations that grow an anvil-shaped topknot. They tend to be localized, growing from a few puffy clouds, then the anvil grows up and the rain falls down. Often lightning announces the impending rain, which may only cover a square mile or less. We saw about 15 of these today -- this being the most spectacular one. The dark gray area under the center of the 'topknot' is getting a nice downpour. The growing anvils may drift away as they form, taking our moisture to another town, full of people welcoming this gift of life.
