Finally the rain has arrived!
The air has cooled and a gorgeous fog has settled in the valley giving an energised feel to everything (including me and my salad greens).
The scrub turkey is no longer scratching around like a maniac, he gently pushes the leaves, as there is plenty to eat now. The ground is soft beneath my feet and completely wet. The brown grass seems to already have green leaves here and there. The air seems easier to breathe. Colour has returned where before everything was washed out and pale, now even the dirt seems more brown. The discarded leaves are beautiful shades of red, orange, yellow and green.
So our dance will shift into a different gear, time to respond to the wet season weather. If the sun comes out and drags the moisture from the ground, we will draw ourselves in and concentrate on slow moves. If another storm sweeps through, we will use this energy to drill and turn the wheel with improvisation.
To all the beautiful tropical dancers enjoying the rain – breathe it in and celebrate another wet season!
