While it didn’t rain today nor was there a single cloud in the sky, I was thinking of rain all the same. It’s effects on my mood are completely calming and soothing. Vermont got it’s fair share of rain this summer, but I still enjoy it when it’s here. Every time it begins to rain I stop and listen to the sound it makes as it hits the roof or the windows. I also can’t help but think about Winnie the Pooh when it rains. It sounds ridiculous, but his song about being a rain cloud always makes me smile. Part of my enjoyment also comes from it being such a little enjoyment in life. It doesn’t cost a thing and I still get the pleasure of seeing it all the same.
“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.” ~Langston Hughes
