Yipee! it is raining….there is an instant coolness emanating through the place. At last I feel cool naturally no ac required. It has been too hot recently. The place needs to be cooled.
I hate it when it rains though. Yeah I know this is shocking given my last paragraph.
To me rain seems like the earth is crying. Have you ever really looked at rain drops? They are like giant tear drops without the salt. It makes the place all gray, dark, wet and soggy. Your shoes get wet as you step into the puddles. If you left home without an umbrella or a raincoat you will get wet. And if it rains for longer than a day then it affects your bones and you feel cold.
I could never live in places like England or Seattle because I would be forever depressed. I am a sunshine girl.. I need it… I depend on it to keep my moods upbeat. I swear I am the only person who wakes up if it is raining. Most people would snuggle deeper into their pillows, sinking into an even deeper sleep. Not me I am awaken by it and find it hard to get back to sleep.
On the flip side-I can also see the virtues and beauty of rain. Of course, we all need rain to survive, plants and trees need it to grow etc. It is beautiful to see the plants and grass stand tall after a good shower. The place looks clean, lush and green. As the rain starts to fall if you look carefully you actually see the flowers leaning towards the rain. Fascinating.
Yet even though I would never ask for it to stop. I have to say I hate the rain.
Yeah the sun is coming back out again… maybe I’ll see a rainbow.
