    Rain takes me back to the age of innocence,

    when everything was carefree and the most exciting adventure was to run out side and dance around while you got rained on. The first drops that hit your skin gives you the shivers and your breath catches in your chest and you hold it there and slowly your body starts to adjust...

    Well not when it's actually raining.

    When it's just started to rain. Or maybe when it's just about to start. No... for that fraction of a second when the first rain drops are three feet above the ground. On a hot day. On a 94-degree day. In late May. Maybe early June. When everything is blooming. When it hasn't...

    Our Metal Roof

    Our home is stone with a metal roof. You cannot see the metal from the inside unless you are in the kitchen which has a wood cookstove. The metal is exposed between the rafters as the chimney exits the kitchen providing a wonderful drum for the rain! I love to sit and listen...

    The smell of wet grass,

    as the rain falls out of the grey sky, and I am sitting here at home, watching the patterns of raindrops on the windows. My thoughts in a turmoil, my heart beating faster, as the sound of the rain soothes and calms me, I take a deep breath and I know that the sun will shine...

    You Have Not Heard My Story~

    You haven't heard my story, testimony, my life. My real life. what actually infests my mind upon morning till night. You have no idea what I've been through, the scars I have accumulated, the sacrifices, the lies, the crying... The rain I've smelled... The dew I've touched, my...

    When the grass leaves

    and dirt all around you are wet, intoxicating, and the air is moist. If somehow it could be put into a cologne bottle I'd be like those girls from the ace commercials on TV .. Plus being able to pull on my rain boots added bonus :)

    I'm watching the clouds

    and whisks cross along the waters face. I love the smell of rain, the bluster of cold right before the clouds swell and open up. The scatter of raindrops along the grey pavement painting the city. I sit and wait for it, knowing it's coming is all the more reason to watch. New...

    It's silver, and orange,

    lime and caffeine. It smiles but glistens, and in staccato it resonates. It's blue, and purple, golden and rehearsed.

    It's about to rain here in Los Angeles.

    Can't wait, we hardly get it. Finally a good storm is coming. Now I just need a fireplace, hot chocolate with tequila and Godiva liquor...hmm and a bear skin rug naked with my husband.

    It always reminds me of this one time with my

    mum she was biking home. I was so small I was on the bike seat. It started to pour and she was freaking out trying to get us home. I miss her. She's stuck in her addiction and we had a falling out. She screwed me over for a bunch of money. I don't speak to her anymore.

    That foggy grey color.

    The fresh smell to everything. It feels like everything was given a great, natural clean. The flowers smell better. The world smells like a clean slate. Hopefully your car looks cleaner.

    It's raining now. It's 1:40 am

    and I can hear it beat over the roof and down the gutters. It pulses and flows back and forth, lulling me into a pleasant state.

    I apologize if this place isn't the right to ask

    that question but HOW does rain smells? I never thought about it and I am very curious what people say about that.

    I really like going outside after

    or while it rains. I like how the air smells before a bad storm too. It's too bad I can't go outside in the rain without an umbrella because my hair would get poofy and thick again.

    Nothing is more relaxing,

    more familiar than the smell of rain. Here in the Midwest, we don't get very much rain. I miss living in Seattle....I want rain boots and an umbrella again!!
