Rain is so important and it so seldom falls in the right place! But when it does, it is GOLD!

I photographed–actually 3 years ago–a blade of grass that had some morning drops of rain on it. I took one of these drops and turned it into gold color, enlarged it, and placed another one like it on that grass piss there is a small one on it that is natural and some regular drops on top that I did not turn gold color–perhaps I should have! Perhaps I will too in another moment of time when I find where the original of this photo is from 3 years ago.

In Southern California rain seldom falls and when it does, since we are in a desert here basically, it just runs straight down into the ocean. After a big downpour, within 5 minutes it can look here like it never rained. So when I see the smallest sign of possible rain, don’t even think of trying to find me at home… I will be outdoors, smelling in the fresh scent of heavenly rain and turning every rock and leaf to find life awakening from the golden rain.

So here is a photo–I have a series of this–of my version of Golden Dew, which you can purchase in print if you click on the word GOLD in caps; it looks best on metal:
