Crazy weather, weather crazy

I love the rain... it reminds me of being born.. again and again... of the cycle of life, and the ways in which the innocence of children can be a storehouse of learning for us adults. I love summer, because of its warmth, that eternal feeling of being embraced with the kiss of sunrays leaving you just a little pink... and I love the breeze that works its way into my room when im writing... playing a little distracting game with me and the muse... teasing just enough to get some amount of free writing out in a mere five minutes.

I love my freedom. My family. My books. My car. Yes, that too. I love being a girlie girl. And I love being South African. Oh and jelly tots. But for now, I love the rain. Its great for writing. And painting. And baking, believe it or not. My shortbread biscuits just came out superbly today!

This rain has memories for me. It reminds me of coffee shops and colourful umbrellas. It reminds me of yellow butterflies. It reminds me of spontaneiety. It reminds me of me...

heya... so can I "rain" on your parade : ) I love the rain too, but its a bummer when your sunday newspaper gets soggy wet, like mine has, for the last few weekends... the paper guy just kinda flings it over the gate...
second pet peeve i have about the rain is, the way the heavens suddenly open on you the day you get your hair done, and NO UMBRELLA... oh well, its still good to hear the gentle tapping of water drops against your window... actually its raining here in Durbs as I write this... btw, we need to go puddle hopping after a good rain storm to add to our list of things to do... : )
