Rain or shine

I like rain. 


I like the feeling of excitement when the air suddenly changes just before a downpour.


I like to sit inside and look out at the raindrops.


I like to walk in the rain.


I like going to sleep to the sound of the rain. 


I like how the air feels when it's finished raining.  All sparkly and clean. 


And I love how rain makes me so grateful for the moment when the sun comes out again.


Perhaps there are some deep and profound analogies I could draw from this moment. 
But in that moment, I find I don't need the profound anymore. 

All I need is that simple feeling of warmth on my face.  A sparkly clean little moment of gratitude.

   
That's what I like best about rain.

I also love the rain. The best thing is you get to stay inside and play boardgames!
But it is a pity when you don't sleep on a top floor as you can't fall asleep with the pitter patter on the roof.

Oh that moment before the storm. That's the best moment.
