The Tempest & The Rainbow: April 2022 Issue Table of Contents


The wind and the waves

echoed her heart-

constant and pure.

The storm was her soul-

wild and untamed...

And when the tempest

raged around her,

she faced it

until the rainbow appeared

and a new beginning was born.

~ A. Bergloff


The tempest and the rainbow are forever linked in nature and in our imagination. They are the balance to one another. The unpredictability of storms and life gives way to the beauty of the rainbow and dreams, and it is through stories that we understand this and are inspired.

This month, EC is presenting ten imaginative tales in the second issue in our series of "weather-works" for 2022 that explore some element of weather - from rain to wind to snow and beyond.

So, please enjoy, and as always dear readers...

Stay enchanted!
