Rain is grace; Rain is the sky descending to the earth; without Rain, there would be no life.
John Updike

I woke to the sound of the rain this morning, and to me there is nothing more peaceful than it’s sound.
Although wet, it brings peace… To me the Rain brings me such a sense of calm. The louder the Rain the more serene I become. The Rain to me is like a beautiful quiet night by the ocean. I find it utterly fascinating that the Rain takes so many different forms, much like a chameleon. The Rain can bring with it a dreary, cold, and wet day. The Rain (especially here in Florida) can signify a Summer afternoon. It Rains while the sun is still high in the sky or when it looks like hell will be unleashed on earth. Some see the Rain as a depressing event, I see the Rain as growth, cleansing, and a thoroughly tranquil moment.

Have you ever stopped to think about the course the Rain takes? Rain travels (think of a hurricane), sometimes it travels from the Middle East and comes to us and showers us with it’s glory. For all intensive purposes, the damn Rain travels more than most of us will in a lifetime! Call me a geek, BUT the thought captivates me!

I have always been fascinated by the Rain, and look forward to it’s appearance in my days. Thank you rain for the wet and muddy goodness you brought to me this morning… Look forward to dancing in you SOON!



P.S. Don’t threaten me with love, baby. Let’s just go walking in the Rain.
Billie Holiday
