JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 199 :: joy is getting caught in the rain

17 Jul

Rain is so rainy. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love to hear rain go pitter-patterer on the window while I am warm and cozy inside. But I hate to get soaking wet in it if I get caught outside.

Tonight, I got caught in a rainstorm on my way home from work.  I was in a car driving so I didn’t get wet but there were puddles and the rain was so hard that I had to pull over and stop at Starbucks to wait it out.

It made me pause. It made me stop. I think that’s what is joyful about rain. The heavens open us and pour water on the Earth and make everything else standstill, pay attention, observe and be present.

Getting caught in the rain might get you soaked but it can also suspend time.
What joy.

More tomorrow…
