    Rain, Yum!

    I love how the air smells before it rains. I love how the air changes. I love the way the rain comes down in sheets, or just sprinkles. I love all the different terms for different types of rain. I love the storm clouds, and how beautiful they look. I love the sound it makes...

    Sitting in front of the fire, nice and toasty in a comfy chair. A good book and a nice cup of tea. Listening to the rain pour outside. Heavenly.

    Better When I'm Sheltered

    I suppose I can enjoy getting soaked though, depending on the day. I am an avid motorcyclist so it can be an inconvenience, but at least if you get caught on a bad day you know it can't get any worse so you just kinda let go and enjoy the spritz of the shower. I've been...

    When It's Raining.

    I'm completely at peace. Everything in my life could be falling apart but when it's raining, I'm calm. It soothes me like nothing else can. Nothing else could compete with the sound of rain. Listening to rain is one of my favorite things to do.

    Not only is it soothing but the rain signals the renewal of life and replenishing of the once dry earth. The growing back of the dry and damaged and the new life be it plant or animal.
