When Did You Last Walk in the Rain?
Have I mentioned how much I love my city?
Tonight I had plans to meet friends at a nearby restaurant for some after-bedtime drinks and conversation. It was only three blocks from our house, and, despite the rain, I decided to talk. I donned my raincoat and my umbrella and set out.
I am still breathing deeply from the smells I took in during that walk.. The air had a damp, worms-on-the-sidewalk kind of smell, but with an autumnal hint of the changing seasons. The air was warm so it was comfortable walking, and I was protected from the elements. The sound of the rain was peaceful; even the woosh of tires of the cars going by me had a calming effect. I think I enjoyed the walk there and back as much as I enjoyed the social outing.
