Just found this unfinished blog post from July 25, 2009, and realized it wound up evolving into part of the first paragraph of Chapter One in Visiting Tom:
as frustrating as the drought is (a boutique frustration for us with our little patch…much more than that for people like my brother with their livelihood withering over many acres) this last week has been tantalizing wiht a serious of miniature showers but the neat thing of our hilltop farm seeing the clouds changing shifting and the little patches of rain draping down
but moments afvter the sprinkles depart your toe still kicking up dust
Y’gotta start somewhere.
Typos and all.
