Rain Mode

1 Comment

We have two dogs, and aside from all the joy and exercise they give us, there are days where I am tempted to send them to boarding school or day camp.

When the terrier sees something so innocuous, such as a dragonfly flitting across the yard, he will send out grunts of frustration and piercing barks. You’re invading my space, is the message he broadcasts.

That grunting and barking, in turn, will get the little meek and mild mini dachshund into a barking frenzy of her own. Put two barking and grunting dogs together, and you might see how that vexes my spirit.

We are appreciative of rainy days, for those are the days that they put aside the hyperactivity, find a quiet spot, and nap. It must be something with the barometric pressure or the sound of the raindrops on the roof that changes them into “rain mode,” and just as music will calm them, so does falling rain.

Hi, and welcome to my blog. I am a published writer, poet, photographer, freelance editor, artist, and career analyst. Growing up in a bilingual family helped me foster my love of languages. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science, a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and Master of Arts in History. My short stories, poetry, and photographs have been published in the Emerald Coast Review (18th and 19th editions), newspapers, and in many other publications. I enjoy Pre-Code films, photography, music, travelling, history, reading, and living each day to the fullest in The Oasis. My publications include Engaged (an anthology of my poems), The Crowd of Turin, God of the Sea: A Short Book of Poetry by the Seashore, Grapes Suzette and Other Poetic Epicurean Delights, Gallery Night, Indigo Fantasy, The Green Gloves, Puppy Love, Supreme Theater, and others. I am currently working on an anthology of my short stories, including a roman à clef tale, and am in collaboration with another artist in writing a novel. My books are available through Amazon. Check them out. Buy them. Read them. Send me your thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.
