I Love the Rain
Rain is also associated with childhood memories. When I smell the rain-soaked earth, I think of camping trips when I was young as it rained so often when we were on family holidays.
I walk in the rain. I garden in the rain. Probably the only time I don't like it is when it is rainy and very, very cold.
When I walk with Meeko on rainy days, the walks are more intimate. I am less likely to see as many fellow walkers. And, especially on the days with hard rain, when I do pass someone, there's often a nod, an unspoken camaraderie.
This morning's rain was quite lovely and light. Here are a couple of images from my walk this morning:
"Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet."
