Song For Making Rain-- Quote 9/17/12

I usually walk where the rains fall
Below the east I walk
I being the Talking God
I usually walk where the rains fall
Within the dawn I walk
I usually walk where the rains fall

Among the white corn I walk...
Among the collected water I walk
Among the pollen I walk...
By means of the white corn darkness is cast
Over it dark clouds cast a shadow
Over it male rain casts a shadow
Among it zigzag lightning hangs suspended here
and there...
Among it is a gentle spray of rain

As I walk where it usually rains
I being the good and everlasting one
It being pleasant in front of me
It being pleasant behind me
As I walk where it usually rains
As I walk where it usuallt rains

-Song For Making Rain
By Basket Maker Shaman

From the book, 'Talking To The Ground', by Douglas Preston

I hope I bring some hope... below is from the Drought Monitor's website. It says there should be some improvement for some portion of the country. Still some persistence, but some portion. I'll take it! Wish we'd all get better.

Here is a link that might be useful: NOAA's site

Well it said we are improving....they lie! It rained today...less than a 10th of an inch.
There will be a lot of dead trees and bushes next spring...not to mention perennials.
