Mark told me that in Sierra Leone, when a big rain comes, life freezes. Wherever you are, you stay there.

Meetings can wait.

Meals can wait.

Life can wait.

It's a delayed existence that celebrates the present tense. As Seattle was caught in a deluge of Biblical proportions this morning, I was grateful for the torrential downpours that created Sabbath in the midst of busy-ness.

Sadly, the rain in seattle takes too much of the Autum-Winter-Spring. If we were to let the meeting wait, Microsoft would be in Virginia.. or something!

I love the romanticism of it though. =) lovely post!
