The weather on the tv down these parts nearly always puts a cloud over my small island home. So far away , they just make a guess at it, im sure.
We have our own weather system, the islands where I live, and to rely on the tv weather forecast is a complete waste of time. Maybe I could write and complain, but then again, that little cloud reminds me of the spirit world, The Cloud Of Unknowing, a much loved ancient on the contemplative life.;)
