Beginning October 21, this blog, Rain Trueax's Rainy Day Thoughts, will have a co-author-- painter and long-time friend, Diane Widler Wenzel. We have been sharing, encouraging, and discussing life for over 50 years. We don't always agree... I think this will be fun trip for us both. New posts will be on Saturdays and otherwise randomly as something of interest happens.

Summer roses, poignantly fragrant, rich in jeweled hues.
From bud to the dropping of petals. their time is fleeting, yet months later, in the cold of winter, still unforgettable.
I touch carefully, wary of their thorns, as I brush velvety petals against my lips.
