Collectively, we were begging Mother Nature for rain. I heard plenty of "Man, we need more rain, the grass is looking crunchy." "We need some rain bad." Reading the articles and seeing the reports of Wild Fires all throughout Florida made us all the more worried and wanting rain more than ever. So it came to be. Mother Nature listened to our chants and our needs and blessed us with rain on the day we were all together and could experience her glory and her power, realizing that we are mere humans in a world that is precisely tuned to the needs of its inhabitants. Mother Nature said there shall be rain today.
I lived in Seattle for a few years, leaving in mid 2015 to convert the Church bus into a home and live in it full time. Since leaving, I have really been missing the Pacific Northwest scenery and would love to take the bus up there to live for a while.
