Let it Rain

“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.” Bob Marley (Source: Goodreads).

“Life isn’t finding shelter in the storm. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron (Source: Goodreads).

It’s been raining all day. Ok, it’s been raining for a couple of days and it’s supposed to continue through tomorrow. It’s well needed as our province was under a no burn order (the woods were tinderboxes).

I love the rain. I love the smell of a Spring rain – the smell of clean earth, of new beginnings. Learning to dance in the rain, to feel it in all it’s glory takes time. One must weather many a storm to find that pristine moment in time that captures your heart, your mind and your spirit.

I say let it rain, let it pour down on me…I’m ready to dance.

Gene Kelly- Singing in the Rain (From Singing in the Rain)

Colour My World

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add colour to my sunset sky.” – Rabindranath Tagore (Source: http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/r/rabindrana153824).

Last night I took out my colour pencils and my mandala book and coloured. It felt wonderful. I love colour, I love to draw, to paint. I’m not great at any of those, but I love to do it. I think from now on I will make that a part of my daily routine – to paint, draw or colour before bed and during some point in a day as a form of meditation practice.

Spring has finally arrived in my neck of the world and it fills me with hope. I can’t wait to see the fireflies dancing in the summer nights, the chorus of frogs, birds, and insects filling the earth with their colourful songs and chirps. Breathing in the peace, breathing out the dark.
