Cabin fever

Oh, the rain! Every single day this week and it’s threatening to continue pouring well into next week. When there was a break in the deluge, I had to take the precious opportunity to mow my lawns, back and front, or I would be forced to bring in an industrial-sized bush hog to knock down the knee-high vegetation.

I took one short walk around my neighborhood, an effort to fend off cabin fever, and to escape with my equally interiorly isolated dogs. No dedicated camera, in case of a precipitous ambush, so my only quasi-photo hike images this week were captured on my smartphone.

When I did brave the floods to restock my bare pantry and fridge, I discovered a stow away. You know it’s bad when amphibians are searching for a dry place to hide.

There was a break in the clouds this morning, and I had high hopes of a sunny day. Those hopes were dashed as the rains came despite the sun, and a thunderstorm warning crawled along the bottom of my television screen.

The only thing left to do, is make cookies and comfort eat until the storm season is over.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.

  1. We have been under a drought for so long that I have almost forgotten days like that but when I was in my twenties, we had flood after flood for weeks. Cabin fever is tough!
