06/12 (Day 54)
The morning wasn’t much to speak of. Lars and John were off at work and I lounged around the house on my own until nearly 3:00. I still had a full battery on my laptop from the day before and I had a lot to do online so I used it until it was nearly dead. It was cloudy all morning but the air was warm and humid. Rain was in the forecast but not until after 5:00 when my outdoor gathering would begin. I watched the weather mulling over whether to move the gathering to an indoor location but waited until last minute to make the call. I was pretty certain it was going to rain though because if I have a gathering it’s pretty much going to rain, even if I’m in San Diego where it almost never does. My last five or so gatherings have been rained on. I’m not sure how to take that. Mother Nature doesn’t like to take it easy on me. It could be taken very negatively but maybe it is a message that it’s not going to be easy to create a healthier planet but I’ve got to push through the challenges. I ask myself what the message is every time and I’m not sure what it is but I at least try to take the rain for what it is and give gratitude to the earth for the fresh water.
