I chose to use this photo today, because when I took it, it felt like our outer atmosphere was literally closing in on us all. The top of this very tall building was staving off this impending world of clouds, but it wasn't tall enough. It's rained here for the past 12 days, off and on, mostly on. It's been too dreary to sit by the pool, unless someone wants to play a long game of Who-Can-Hold-Their-Breath-Under-Water-Until-Death. And when the rain has cleared, it has been so muggy, the air so thick with precipitation anticipation, that there was no brief respite from rain at all. Just a constant reminder that it was just here and is on its way back. The forecast for the next ten days is... rain. Here's looking at you, depression!
