Rainy Day

I've been crabby all day. It's too slow working over a VPN. Democratic hand wringing is annoying. My favorite website has started linking to Sarah Palin apologists and various anti-vegetarian nutbars. The dog is STILL peeing on the rug.

And then we went for a walk in the rain. Laney in groovy new silver sneakers, Ginger overjoyed at being outside. They jumped in every puddle we passed. And, bless my withered old atheist heart, each puddle held a moment of pure grace. When your kid and your dog are jumping in puddles... well, that's living, my friend.
