We’re in the midst of a windy rainstorm today, and it’s telling me to take it in stride and see something good in it. All it is is rain and wind, unless my thoughts make it into something messy and scary. It’s what’s happening right here and now, so I might as well welcome it – and welcoming is way more pleasurable than resisting.
And I’ll bet Alfred Bierstadt welcomed this storm (below), since it gave him the opportunity to make a memorable painting.

DOING THE WIND’S WILL Ellie G., 42, Blessings, CT 01/06/19 She feels an unconfined and friendly wind inside and around her life, and she loves doing what this wind wishes. It’s both colossal and quiet, and softly throws itself through her days, and she’s happy to be sympathetically carried by such a helpful force. She enjoys finding ways to ride with this wind, and the ride is always instructive.
