I am really enjoying this lovely monsoon season. Despite the fact that my hair is an afro and my skin is freaking out even more than normal I don't mind. We moved around a lot growing up and there are few things that remind me of my childhood. Desert rain is always quite nostalgic for me. I can remember the sound of thunder smacking off of the mountains in Sabino Canyon. I can remember dancing in the streets as it rained in Val Vista Lakes. I remember walking home from school in the pouring rain in Prescott as I tried to shelter my flute. There is no better smell than desert rain.
