As I stepped out of the door this morning, running late, having to take a last minute photo to use in an article, I noticed: it was raining. Not a hard, pelting rain, but a nice, soft sprinkle after the apparent nighttime storm. Although my inner-journalist wanted to get a good shot for her soon-to-be published article, I must say I was even happier that liquid was finally falling from the sky. Goodbye drought.
I really do love the rain.
“Mom, I could totally live in Seattle.”
Well, I mean, I like when it’s raining while watching from the inside…while I write, work, perhaps sip some tea if I’m home, under a soft warm blanket. That occasional day would come where I would go play out in the rain, grace everyone with my singing voice, but probably not if the rain came out of the blue and down-poured during an unexpected time…other than a drought. But, let’s not get into that. I love the rain, the warm, soft aroma that resignates from its puddles. And I’m happy that it’s raining.
In addition to rain, these are the other things I’m loving right now:
The rain has long-since passed. The sun has been slumbering for awhile now, and all is dry. Perhaps a dampness still lingers in the soil, permeating its nutrients. As I sit here sipping some tea, in my warm blanket, writing, catching up on news, doing the things I love, the pitter-patter of rain almost seems real, and for now, I am content, and I turn the success of today into my rainy day.
