Today it rained.  It rained all day.  The grass seems greener.  I feel happy. I always tend to feel happy when it rains.

Maybe it is due to my upbringing in Alaska.  Long cold dark winters which finally give way to LONG cool, light and rich summers which bring such a dramatic, refreshing change.

Maybe it is because I am not a crier.  I have always wanted to be someone who cries.  I find it very effective, no powerful, when tears easily flow. Whether giving a lesson, sharing a thought or saying, "I am sorry," tears truly show such lovely and tender emotion.

I usually have a good cry about once a year.  I wish it were more often.

Maybe the rain, symbolizes my desire for them to flow freely down my cheeks during times of pain or happiness...

Either way, I love rain.

And just as the sun will eventually break its way through the clouds, coming back into view, giving us light, a good cry, releases emotion which brings a relief...a brightness of hope.
