Nature is an Old Lady

by Bridget Sanchez

Weather has struck Southern California with rain. An atypical phenomenon, to be sure, and it reminds me of a certain quote, which goes something like this:

“Velvet pillows, safari parks, sunglasses; people have become woolly mice. […] Instead of expressing their gratitude for the rain by getting wet, people walk around with umbrellas. Nature is an old lady with few friends these days, and those who wish to make use of her charms, she rewards passionately.”

The Rider, by Tim Krabbé

An old lady came to visit us and I, for one, am awaiting her return.
