You See The Drip Drops Coming?

6 Mar

Me and the rain have a love hate relationship. When the drops are weighty, like tears, I feel that they heal my soul and cleanse my spirit. That type of rain makes me feel like the world is giving me the chance to take an old cloth and wipe the slate clean, ready for the sunshine that it will bring.

But that silly thin rain really annoys me. All it serves to do is get you wet when it isn’t even really there, and make your hair crimp and fuzz, so you end up looking like you have been on a week’s holiday in Barbados ( anyone who has bin will know what I mean by Barbados hair; as soon as you step off the plane your hair goes ‘poouff’ and becomes a fro. It has taken down the most perfect of do’s, believe me!)

I crave to leave England and go somewhere where rain is rare, and people love it when it falls. Maybe ill move to Africa and take part in the rain dance, to summon those heavy drops and reset my heart. Becuase there is nothing worse than opening those curtains on a Monday morning and seeing the familiar little thin drops of rain on the window glass.

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    We had rain like that here yesterday. They weren’t even drops, more like spots. Horrible.

    Over here in Australia we don’t get much rain – but when we do, IT RAINS! Know what I mean? Buckets of the stuff! Heavy rain that would clean your soul and cleanse your spirit!
    We are so happy to see it, we go out and dance in the stuff! It means our lawns will become green again and flowers will bloom and farmers heave a sigh of relief because the life-giving water will mean their herds of cattle will survive till the next drought.

    Rain fell all day yesterday here and now this morning I awoke to snow falling… I am ready for SPRING 🙂 The thing I love most about where I live is the change of seasons…it is amazing and holds promise for the light at the end of the tunnel!

    I’m not a rain person. At all. And it doesn’t rain here near as much as it does in England. A small handful of times I’ve gone out and played in the rain and it has just been fabulous. But most of the time I’m in a rush to be somewhere and am irritated by the rain.

    Also, I’ve never heard that quote, but it’s such a good one!

    I am sort of a rain person, but it can get to be a drag if it rains too often.

    You are so right differentiating between different sorts of rain and I agree that ‘thin rain’ is really horrible. I’d much rather have ‘wet rain’.

    i feel ya sister! i live in seattle and dang-it’s just a constant annoying drizzle.
    it wouldn’t be so bad if there was thunder and lightning or something-a big ole powerful storm like where i used to live. but, no, just the cold drizzle…..
    it does make me appreciate the sun that much more though 🙂

      i really want to visit Seattle. I might come next time im over with family.. although if it rains im slightly more inclined to stay in California!
