Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

July Dawning

Because I rose at five this morning, I was outside in time to watch the sun rise over Smith Mountain at six. First, just a hint of sun appeared.

The view toward the north looked ominous. Red sky at morning?

Back to the east, however, the sky glowed gold . . .

. . . but still red toward the north.

Finally, the sun appeared behind the mountain . . .

. . . and a rainbow appeared in the northwest. A rainbow!

The other end vanished into a cloud.

The morning sun made everything golden.

But clouds still covered the northern sky.
