...and then - the rain


But the true lover of rain.... has a deep inner enjoyment of the rain, as rain, and his sense of its beauty drinks it in as thirstily as does the drinking earth. It refreshes and cools his heart and brain; he longs to go forth into the fields, to feel its steady stream, to scent its fragrance; to stand under some heavy-foliaged chestnut-tree, and hear the rushing music on the crowded leaves.
 ~John Richard Vernon, "The Beauty of Rain," 1863

 my favorite music that inspires me on this wet day.


  1. Beautiful photos, and those words, just lovely.

    The song is beautiful.

  2. You never cease to amaze me! I have been playing catch-up reading your past few posts. . .beautiful and very inspiring, as usual.
    I bought the Buck video because I want some of what you have, that super zest for life, in viewing this I found a lot of courage is wherever and whatever turns you on, go for it.
    I will never be surprised by what you do but I will always be thankful to have seen how you do it.
