We are All Rain Proof & Water Resistant

Even in the puddles of the dreariest days, we play!

 

 

Alone Again

Maudlin in the Rain

Biking Through the City’s  Streets 

Splashing in Puddles Rushing Off to Work

Taking the Time for the Joys of a Summer Rain Shower

Paris in the Rain – “I Will Never Be the Same!”

 Souls and Rain-Drops

Sidney Lanier 

Light rain-drops fall and wrinkle the sea,
Then vanish, and die utterly.
One would not know that rain-drops fell
if the round sea-wrinkles did not tell.

So souls come down and wrinkle life
and vanish in the flesh-sea strife.
One might not know that souls had place
weren’t not for the wrinkles in life’s face. 

 
“Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.”
Roger Miller

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s learning to dance in the rain.” – Unknown

Rain  – James Rowe

 

Rain fell last night…quiet, gentle rain,

that tapped against my window pane,

and called me back from troubled sleep,

to soothe a heart too numb to weep. 

My loneliness was too deep and real,

and like a wound that would not heal,

it throbbed within me, and I knew

my arms were empty without you. 

But as I listened to the sound

of soft rain falling on the ground,

I heard your voice, tender and clear,

Call my name, and oh my dear,

I threw my window open wide,

to let the sweet rain rush inside.

It kissed my lips, my eyes, my hair,

and love, I knew that you were there. 

Tears that my heart could not release

Fell down from Heaven, bringing peace.

We are born with many sensory based gifts associated with heighten awareness, but none can rival our ability to think up visual depictions of the things that we desire most and hold a sincere appreciation for in our lives. 

No matter what our financial status, whether we are rich or poor, being able to see the unseen by simply putting our imaginations to work results in a treasure trove of assets which makes us wealthy beyond any monetary measure.

When we imagine, we dream, and when we dream, we create a unique world of our own making where anything and everything is a possibility if we will just bring it to life by forming the idea of such imaginings as being real in our consciousness.

It does not matter if we have experienced the smell, the taste or the feel of a live sensation or not, all we have to do is be resourceful enough to ingeniously conjure up the image in as much of its splendor as we can possibly master at the moment.  

How astounding it is to know that as our thoughts have the ability to wind their way through the halls and imaginary corridors of our complex and highly creative minds, that there is always the possibility that we will, by some remote chance, come across a full fledge panorama of a fantasy we arbitrarily envisioned as we mentally turn a make-believe corner and find ourselves jubilant by what we come upon. 

 Regardless, of the probability of our wish coming true, daydreaming will always shine a ray of hope on impossible pleasantries that we choose to picture in our minds.

 As children we were put to task for allowing ourselves to become inattentive and distracted, but as adults we are considered invaluable members of collaborative teams if asked to contribute our sharp minds and insights to inventive projects  and uniquely devised presentations. 

The gift of imagery is an endowment that keeps on giving because it continues to come to our rescue again and again, by rising up from inside of us like a geyser that propels a stream of gushing water high into the air, gaily triggered by some spontaneous interval in what would otherwise be regarded as another humdrum day. 

Imagery provides us with a temporary intermission, relieving us of a nerve-racking instant caused by an intruding predicament that interferes with what would be a more harmonic aspect of our daily existence.  

“I was trying to daydream, but my mind kept wandering.  ~Steven Wright”
