I’m sitting here in the office doing work and suddenly I hear the wind hit the windows hard. I look outside to see a torrential downpour that only lasted a few minutes. Those are the times when I wish I wasn’t indoors. On a day like this, when it’s in the mid-60s F, and it’s raining like crazy, I only want to be outdoors in it. Rain has such a cleansing effect (like so many movies and poets have said throughout the centuries), and it makes me feel clear-headed and happy.
I guess I’ll have to wait until the summer, when here in Raleigh, NC there are thunderstorms galore. I just have to wait…
