    O, there was no rain here since May and none is expected before October, I am gonna need to fly out of here to enjoy some of those blissful tears.

    So beautifully, deftly crafted, Rachael. Starting with one of the coolest words I know as the title…then rhymed with Bach (?!)…through the spattering….you evoke so clearly the sounds on this one, Rachael, I can hear the pain on the pane. You are a master, er, mistress of weaving….xoxo

      Thank you for taking so much time with this 🙂 There is a beautiful and moving piece of music entitled Lachrymae or some such – written by an early music composer like Byrd or Taverner – but I can’t find the CD. Perhaps you know it? Hope all well with you. We’re just back from a few days away at a wedding of two not young friends. An interesting affair. xxx
