The rain continues to fall in my slice of Appalachia. However it is slowing down a bit and the rivers are slowly ebbing back to their normal levels. The rain brings to life thousands of little creeks that cascade off of the surrounding mountains. They pass through the forest creating a spectacle worthy of any display to be found in a theme park as they twist and turn through the tree roots and shoot over the rocks or just roll down the natural staircase of ancient stones.
As a child I loved to play in the woods on wet days and imagine what it be like to be able to shrink myself down like Alice in wonderland until I was small enough to make a boat from a birch leaf and a paddle from a twig. I would launch my tiny canoe in one of these streams and ride the rapids until I shot over the falls. Of course, being magical enough to change size would mean I would be normal size before I hit the bottom and thus avoided any real danger.
As look into the forest that encompasses the little wet weather stream the first thing I noticed was that the moss has that light green color that comes with new growth. Which is another sign that Spring is on the way.
