south carolina is in our thoughts with all the recent rains. we've had nothing near that, but it has been raining for days. the winds and weather have been most peculiar this weekend. i ventured out to the botanical garden during a late break in the weather, to walk along the rising red river. the mind blowing beauty i saw there and was alone with felt like church. i had to stop when i saw the river rising over the bank a few feet ahead! i hurried back along the shore to higher ground, blessed by beauty.
