I’ve been thinking about rain, or rather about the lack of rain we’re experiencing here on California’s central coast. We need rain. We need water. Badly. So, I was inspired to make some pieces this month – earrings that will do a virtual rain dance, swinging and swaying on ear lobes this month – that I’m calling Stormy Skies and Peaceful Puddles.
Photos to come...I know I'm tardy already.
Enjoy and hope for rain!
by Shel Silverstein
I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.
I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said—
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.
