Rainy Days, Chasing The Clouds Away

Leave a comment

Last week the weather was phenomenal. Beautiful, sunny days, 70 degrees, real springlike. If you live in a climate where there are four seasons, you really appreciate spring. Especially since winter was atrocious on the east coast. I don’t know the polling numbers of folks who believe in global warming/climate change, but the changes in weather has been noted by scientists. Those against theories are certainly adamant and believe it to be a hoax. Nevertheless, companies are trying to go green and there is a whole movement and economy based on sustainables, recycling and protecting the environment.

For me the challenge is to not let the weather affect me. I don’t want to feel like I am in Seattle where it rains frequently and residents are said to be depressed and suicidal. I can’t go there. That’s why I spent some time today on two sites that crack me up: “What Would Thembi Do” and “Aw Hell Naw”. The photos crack me up and usually the topics are on horrendous fashion fails and “coonery”. As a matter of fact, I am going to have to add them to my blog roll. Thembi sounds like a sister I would hang out with, and she just earned her Master’s Degree. Funny people crack me up and especially females, because all too often women focus on their looks and snaring a man. Meanwhile, for some men, the player types are the one that focuses on quantity and not quality. But back to females with a sense of humor…Tina Fey, Maya Rudolph, Aisha Tyler, are hiliarious, and can act, write and produce. Queens of Comedy, i.e., Mo’Nique, Sommore, Wanda Sykes are comical as well, catering to their urban audiences. So, I am not going to let the rain bother me, and appeal to my strong inner diva. (I am still broke as hell) Overcast, dark cloudy days, showers will water my bare patch riddled front lawn. I will look out my windows, after washing them, they are filthy, and envision a green oasis.Rain will not depress me, it will instead invigorate me.

I am broke. I have a mailbox full of invites but can’t go nowhere because gas is almost $4.00 a gallon. That won’t get me anywhere at all. But the positive thing is I can work on my writing and my business plans. That, my friends, is a beautiful thing.

I earn one-fourth of my income from three years ago and although still depressed, I am a lot happier. A swift kick in the rear would do me well–I know what has to be done. So I am off of Facebook, refusing to be suckered in by the folks discussing where they are going with their inclusion of liquor brand names, guest lists, dj shout outs and so on.

I need to be on someone’s beach because the ions in the air are so therapeutic.

Let’s Get It Done.

*BTW, “have to”, “need to”, etc are words that cause people angst. So excuse me for these loaded words.
