Why do I love rain and why am I mentioning this today? Well, although summer (officially) began a week ago it’s raining outside so I guess Mother Nature didn’t get the message up here yet. Having said that, I’d like to go on the record as saying – I love the rain. Especially when it’s warm and you can stand in it or dance around in it and just really enjoy the wetness caressing your skin – up close and personal like.
I remember growing up in Oregon (lots of rain there) and jumping up and down in mud puddles and riding my bike through them – just because I could and I loved splashing around in them, also just because I could.
I love the sound rain makes when it lands on the roof, it’s soothing and peaceful. And I love the cleansing smells of the plants and the earth when damp from a good rain storm. All in all I pretty much think that the beauty of rain is a wondrous thing to behold and enjoy!
I taste the rain as it splashes down upon my face – delicious! – PQ
