sanctuary

I do so love the sound and smell of a long, extended rain.

How it sounds against the roof. In the bones of the trees, all wispy branches and no leaves. The change in sound where it hits the skylight, a puddle, the window. The softer light. The clean smell. It's one of my very favorite things, weather-wise.

A quiet evening at home, alone with Russell & the cat. The rain percusses in and out, all through the night and into the day. In the morning, with my coffee, journal and pen, everyone else still asleep - I finally feel calm, clean, and at peace with the turning of the year.

I do so love the sound and smell of a long, extended rain.

Couldn't agree with you more :)

Today I think I'll add making soup to the mix, and then you have one of the most perfect days ever.
