Another rainy day on my trip to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Lucky for me I am sitting inside watching children carving pumpkins. Someone has lit a spicy candle and all is well. My heart is back in California, however, and I wish I could send this rain to southern California. I ‘ve heard from a few friends who live in the area and all are well. The news today highlighted the volunteer efforts of the local communities. It always makes me glad to know that so many people care. Listen to Chopin Prelude No.15, Db Major “Raindrop.” It is a perfect for today.
