Just days ago, the temperature was in the middle 90s. Now, 47 degrees --
cold, wet weather. So I've started a list.
Reasons to Love the Rain:
(a few excerpts)
Because it is the first true lullaby a child remembers.
Because even if you are stranded thousands of miles
inland, the rain never fails to bring you news of the sea.
Because no one remembers your childhood more clearly
than the rain.
Because everyone believes the Doctors who say that blood
runs through our veins but what really keeps us alive
is the rain, after it has married the just opened
petals of the peony.
