Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger.
–St. Basil


The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood,
and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.
–Henry Beston


Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, here would be no life.
–John Updike

      Also please tell if you can see my post or not 😦

      • Yes, sorry, I don’t have time right now to look at your story but I’d be happy to do so soon. Our house is for sale and I have things to work on right now. I look forward to reading it when I have a bit more time to read and comment.


      • Mridubala says:

        Sure Janet. I do understand your situation.
        And thanks for the interest, I hope you will mind to spend some moments to read it, after all it is a short story.
        Take care

    We had a very wet weekend – but the farmers where screaming for rain … so they got it, but I don’t think it was enough, but our Midsummer Festival is coming up .. and it normally rains because everybody want to be outdoors then.
    Fantastic photos … the top one is my favorite …. the grass I think it’s.

    Love the photos and bits of truth and wisdom in the quotes.

  5. Rain can be so beautiful, if only you can capture it in the perfect moment. You definitely found it for these photos though- Really inspiring. Makes me appreciate the grey, gloomy days a bit more.

    • Hi, Hannah. I hope your Monday wasn’t rainy. Mine was beautiful but I thought it would be a good day for the rain pictures and quotes. The perfect rainy day for me would be a day I could curl up in a chair and read.

      Nice to see you.


  6. Lovely drops and photos!
