chiming for happiness

About a month ago there was rain and wind and my Chumash wind chime rattled and banged together and a piece or two broke off. I reattached the pieces with green floral wire, replacing the inadequate nylon thread. Today it is raining and the wind is blowing again and the chime is again banging away and one piece broke off. I took floral wire with me to the porch and reconnected the errant piece.

I love the sound of the metal pieces banging against each other. They only make sounds when the weather is fairly fierce, making those sounds all the more precious to me. I love wind and rain. I love my chimes. They make me happy.
