Wednesday Words of Wisdom in the Wain (Rain)

25 Jun

The richness of the rain made me feel safe and protected; I have always considered the rain to be healing—a blanket—the comfort of a friend. Without at least some rain in any given day, or at least a cloud or two on the horizon, I feel overwhelmed by the information of sunlight and yearn for the vital, muffling gift of falling water.
~Douglas Coupland, Life After God

As you can tell, I love to use alliteration. Rain-Wain, I don’t write with a lisp. 

It was pretty nice out this morning, cool, balmy, with impending muggy on the way. I did my morning walk/run around the big field in front of Mom’s condo. By the time I did my 20 laps, I was pretty sweaty. It’s just water. 

The rest of the day flew by. Breakfast , out to lunch and the store, some errands, visiting, then…oh my goodness…time for my evening walk. 

I scrambled , put on my gym shoes, down the elevator, and out the door. Darn! It was raining! Not hard rain, but substantial. 

So , what would any “waskily wabbit ” walker do? Yep, I ran back up and borrowed Mom’s umbrella. Off I went for 10 laps in the rain. I didn’t melt. Actually, it was rather refreshing. 

While I was walking in the “wain,” I said to myself ,  “Self, (and yes I do say self) You can do anything  you put my mind to. You are amazing!”

As the quote says, ” I have always considered the rain to be healing.”
