The Unjust Fella

The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella,
But chiefly on the just,
Because the unjust steals the just's umbrella
- Charles Bowen

I woke to the sound of rain, the first "appreciable" rainfall of the season. There's talk of cold, thunderstorms, hail, and maybe snow on the higher peaks in Ventura County.
I guess so.
Let's hope for no flooding or landslides.

But for right now, there's a break in the rain, and the sun's out. The hills in the distance are a bit misty and hazy, but the air is crisp and clean.
As are our hopes for the day.

I was hoping to find a quote that spoke of a gentleness of rain,
“Rain! whose soft architectural hands have power to cut stones, and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains.” - Henry Ward Beecher

but found the one above (just/unjust fellas), and heck, I wanted to see who was really paying attention out there! ;)

I've installed the new Adobe CS2 suite and am slowly working my way through the new features. See?

Well, these particular features were existing, actually, but what fun, all the same!

Lots and lots to play with. Maybe the rain will give us reason to stay in, slow down, bundle up, snuggle, get a warm cuppa' joe, and actually get to the "play" part of it all. You guys have a great weekend out there.
