Today in Flagstaff it’s raining.
Last night it was raining. It was raining in Flagstaff yesterday and the day before and the day before that. I ran into the individual that takes care of the golf course up here and he said that he hadn’t watered the course for over three weeks. Rain stops you from what you want to do outside and forces you inside to slow down. Yes. Slow down. Read a book. Make some hot chocolate. Take a nap. Stare out the window and watch the rain. Look at the raindrops fall from the pine needles. Or make a fire and watch the dance of the red, yellow and blue streaks of fire.
Maybe today as I am forced to do you can choose to do. Slow down. This journey is a marathon and not a sprint. Today take some time to enjoy the environment that surrounds you.
