10.21.06 Choosing To Ignore the Weatherman

A good reminder not to believe everything I read:

The morning paper said this would be an overcast, dreary Saturday.
I don’t know about you, but those words
can put me in a day-long funk.
So, I was pleasantly surprised to head outside
and find the skies had paid no attention
and proceeded to make their own plans.
Sure, there were lots of gray, billowy clouds.
But there were also pools of pure blue peeking through all day.
I even caught some rays of sunlight
dancing in a neighborhood pond.
