Living in Arizona, you learn to love the rain. There’s nothing better than an evening thunderstorm with lightning flashing across the sky and the deep rumble of thunder to get the blood pumping. Our monsoon season is in full swing. Although this year, it has been pretty mild, we had a kick-ass storm last night.
Several times I was awakened by a bright flash and the accompanying boom. As so often happens, I caught the tail end of my dream. In years past, it would frequently be about my day job. I’ve never been good at leaving work at work. It haunted my evening hours and invaded my sleep. Last night when I woke, characters from my latest book were running around in my head instead of nightmares leaving me in a cold sweat.
The forecast is calling for showers every night this week–I say bring it on!
