I have to say I am loving this rainy morning with the gently rumbling thunder and a cool breeze blowing through the house. I am, at the same time, energized, and want to grab a good book and spend the day with it. I imagine I will do some necessary housework and then settle back to finish the editing of my book. It is way past its expected launch date.
It is the day after Easter and in this time of rebirth, I can see changes every day. A new flower blooms, the leaves are coming on more quickly, the entire terrain is changing before our very eyes. I know. It happens every year at this time. It is still miraculous to me, so fitting that Easter shares this season of renewal and hope. We know that summer will follow. We will have storms and then heat and more storms, but the earth will accept our seeds and yield to us that which we need. It’s a promise from Mother Nature. It is up to us to keep our end of the bargain. Be sure the seeds we plant are the ones we want to propagate. Be sure to give back what we want to reap, in the coming seasons.
And speaking of seeds - I read an article this morning about some seeds discovered on an archeological dig in 2008. They were in a tiny clay pot that had been buried 800 years ago, and were seeds of a squash that had become extinct. Brought back from extinction now, the squash is growing and available, brought back to life because someone had a strong curiosity and a great respect for the past. It makes one wonder just what can be brought back and given new life. Again, we might want to be paying attention to what we are leaving behind. It might come back for us.
One last reminder that you are invited to “TEA With ALICE” next week. The Giant Puppets will be at the Rector Community Center on April 25 and they promise you a trip down the rabbit hole. I hear the Queen of Hearts may drop in too, as well as the Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit and maybe some others from Alice’s Wonderland trip. This promises to be a stunning show that children and adults will enjoy. Elementary school groups are welcome and teachers are encouraged to bring their students. There will be two shows open to the public. So, make plans to come watch the show. 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25. Tickets are a bargain at $5.00. For more information, you can see the Clay County Arts Council, Inc. facebook page.
Prom is next week too. I guess everyone is looking forward to that. I hope everyone has a magical time. Have fun and stay safe and make tons of beautiful memories.

Take a look at the www.rectorarkansas.com website from time to time. You might want to take a look and let me know if your organization has anything going on that you want to put on the city calendar or if there is anything incorrect. The more we have on the city-wide calendar the less chance we have of encountering a conflict.
