My last post was the beginning of January and so much has happened in the past few months.
I have thought many times about doing a post, however it is obvious that thinking and doing are vastly different.
The spark for this blog post was rain, or more accurately, the smell of approaching rain.
As a youngster growing up in the rural countryside of central Alberta, just northeast of Edmonton, one of my fond memories was the smell of a pending spring rain, bringing with it life and freshness to wash away the final vestiges of winter. Sitting in my home office yesterday afternoon that delightful smell entered my window and once again touched my olfactory receptors. The rains came after and continued in a steady fashion for just over twelve hours. Overnight the lawn across from us has changed from brown to green.
Methinks I will need to type a blog post or two in the next while to catch up on the events of the past few months, both local and international, along with their effect on us. For now though, I will just concentrate, and enjoy, the fresh smell of a spring rain.
