"Let the rain sing you a lullaby."
~Langston Hughes ~
Lasting rain creates its own kind of symphony: rain on the roof, rain on the windshield, road spray, wiper blades, gutters that drip. And I always find rain rather humbling as well- the way it just falls and falls and falls until it stops.
It can be cozy or dreary depending on our outlook and what we have to do, and it can soak in or be sloppy overkill. But whatever else it might be, the rain is a gift: fresh clean water falling all over us from the sky.
I am grateful for the rain even if it interferes with my plans.
