Tears of Clouds

I told John I didn't know what to say about this photo. He said, "You could write about the lacrimae rerum."

Don't you hate that? Men. OMG, so freaking typical.

My friend Bubba said the exact same thing.

yeah, typical to go for the latin term eh? made me go to google!

Bellis said...

Those tears on the leaves could, however, be tears of joy at finally getting some rain.

John's a classic!

Cliff, I bet you put him up to it.

This is why god invented portable computer devices, Kalei, so we could communicate with men even when we're not at our desks.

It was so nice to listen to the rain yesterday, Bellis, and have a cozy afternoon.

That he is, Anonymous.

Such a learn-ed man you married Petrea!!! That's just soooo... sooo... esoteric?!! My mind is being stretched beyond capability!!! I'm going to have to go meditate now...

Susan Campisi said...

John is brilliant, isn't he? I would have said one of a kind, but apparently Cliff's friend Bubba is in the same class.

I'm so pleased we've gotten rain this weekend.

How wonderful to have someone in your life who knows a phrase like "lacrimae rerum." My guy would have said "It's so hot the clouds a sweating."

Petrea Burchard said...

Chieftess, I often have to ask, "what does that mean?" or check google or even pull out a reference book to keep up. It's good for me.

Susan, when John, Cliff and Bubba hang out together the banter ranges from Bière to bier to beer.

Think positive, Speedway, that's poetry.

I think he's a keeper!!! He'll keep you young Petrea!!!

Trish said...

yup, you married yourself a stupid man, didn't you!?! ;-)

I've long said we need to keep learning, no matter how old we get. I guess you've got your own personal google learning plan stuck to you by way of marriage license! Enjoy!

Petrea Burchard said...

Chieftess, that's a plus.

Trish, I had to have some way to lord it over him.

Ms M said...

Lovely photo! And John's suggestion is eximius.

Margaret said...

Tell John to get his mind out of the gutter.

Petrea Burchard said...

Har! The both of you.

As Boz often says -- that John, he's a pip.

Petrea Burchard said...

Sometimes I think Boz takes after me.

Sorry about that. I was on the wrong page!

It was kind of nice, though.

Great photo. The scent of spring rain is so special.
