I will not lie, I’m listening to P.M. Dawn as I write this post because for some reason, they just seem rain appropriate. I feel like there was always some type of rain sequence in their videos or maybe it’s the piano that makes me think rain. Either way, the are just always kind of fitting for typing out thoughts. Some people love rain, some people hate it. I’ll admit that after days and days of gloomy rainy weather, it can get depressing but, it takes a lot of them to get there for me. I’m a lover of rain. The sound of it immediately soothes me and can lull me to sleep in minutes. I love to watch it rain and love the smell of rain even more. We worked in the yard all day yesterday and you could smell it, just hanging there, waiting until night. Rain means warmer weather, flowers, the change from brown to green, rainbows, relief from summer heat and it always brings back a flood of memories. Memories of swimming in the lake while it rained, mornings in Tulum on our honeymoon, watching storms on the front porch with my dad as a kid, all good, happy memories.
