And the Rain Comes...

It rained today and with it came sweet relief. It seems that the build up of pressure just before a down-pour is in direct correlation to my sinus headaches. My skull has become a low-tech barometer. Instead of wires and gears – sinew, cartilage and bone.

I sat out on the covered porch, watching the rain for a long time... feeling the ridges on my face and skull like tectonic plates. I half imagined that my blood was like molten magma, flowing beneath the surface. Beneath the surface is a hidden continent, formed and unformed, shifting and colliding in upon itself. I watched the rain and wondered about this secret place, buried deep within.
