It is a good feeling to be looking back at this daily blogging challenge from the end. It wasn’t as hard as I had anticipated. On the whole, I am glad I did it. It was good to participate in the Nano Poblano community group because it helped me with meeting some new blogging friends.

I will be participating in a writing course with WordPress in December but may not be posting everything from that project. I plan to continue to post at least three times a week here on my blog. Well, here is my last post for this month.


When clouds form in the skies we know that rain will follow but we must not wait for it. Nothing will be achieved by attempting to interfere with the future before the time is ripe. Patience is needed.”

I Ching


This quote says more to me than just about being patient while waiting for rain. It can relate to any kind of waiting for something to happen. I know the restless, agitated feeling of wanting to find the answer to whatever I am seeking. I have found that I must learn to be patient. I have had this experience in the past. Whatever is supposed to happen will happen when it is time for it to happen. Patience.


“Significant rain to much of Southwest California Tuesday into Wednesday….This storm has the potential to bring heavy rainfall to much of Southern California next week.” —The Weather Channel (11/29)

We have been patient for quite a while. Good news to a state gripped by drought. We have had beautiful weather for most of November but we need rain. It is a bit cooler today, Saturday. We need rain because when things get so dried out and the weather stays hot the fire danger increases.

I saw a report online this morning that Northern California’s Fire Season is now over because their temperatures have been dropping. We are waiting for the same news here in Southern California. Patience.

      Thanks Mark. I would say yes it was a good month with writing. I am glad I ended up this weekend with my kids here. I want to come back to comment on your post later today about your job as Nano Poblano leader. You were great! Appreciate all the support you gave me and yes I want to stay in touch. 🙂

    Wow the quote hit home for me… It is so true about both rain and patience in general.
    It’s such a pleasure to read your blog as it brings me peace and inspiration!
    Hope it’ll rain there soon…

    It’s been raining on and off (but mostly on) here in the San Francisco Bay area since Friday night and it’s expected, with a break in the rain tomorrow, to continue through Thursday. And we so needed it. Our patience was running thin.

    Excellent quote Deborah. I have learned to be patient over the years. It comes with illness I think. I live with my sister and she has no patience. I laugh at her sometimes when she gets that way, sometimes over something that isn’t very important, that makes her mad though so I try to resist 🙂

      Thank You. It is true I think living life will teach us patience as we deal with our struggles. Yeah and we learn more and more not to sweat the small stuff. Thanks for commenting. 🙂
