It's raining today, and it's very dark outside. Weather like this always makes me want to nap, paint/draw, read, or go to the bookstore. I'm sure everyone feels they want to do certain things depending on the weather- if it's nice, for instance, they want to go to the beach or a park. Rain sort of makes you slow down (much like winter does) and simply find something quiet and comtemplative to do. These are days that my whole family can spend hours in different rooms with their own pursuits (even the nine-month-old) and be content. We're all here together, but there's no push to be connected and engaged at all times.
I like the rain, and the thinking and dreaming that comes with it.
