Rainy day thoughts fill my head . . .


Rain, rain go away . . . (this made me think of Edward Gorey's artwork. By horrormove of deviant art)

A storm system is moving through, cold fronts and warm fronts colliding, and the torrential rains were battering the house for a bit. There is a tornado watch out until 4 p.m. but so far, so good. Just heavy rain, some hail and a bit of thunder.
One good thing about the rain. It quietened down the poltergeists in the walls whose antics woke me up from my shut-eye.

And my thoughts return to my novel (dear Leigh sent me some more musings over the fates befalling our characters)  I have been wrestling with managing the plot threads to make sure it all makes sense.

I am determined to do better by the characters than certain television scriptwriters have done by Richard.

I am watching The Sundowners on TCM and wondering how authentic Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum‘s Australian accents would sound to the Aussies out there. I think they’re pretty good. I’ve another idea for a Guy post milling about in my head. I’ve a need to involve my brain in something fun and creative to help me ignore the stubborn aches and pains but my body is also arguing it wants more sleep. Dilemmas, dilemmas.

"Rain Storm" by Childe Hassam, an American Impressionist painter. For some reason, I am envisioning lanky Harry Kennedy strolling through the rain with an umbrella, wearing that cheeky, sweet grin of his.

Ah, Harry. You provide mental sunshine, you dear boy.
