I love the sound of the rain - don't you? I love it when I'm warm and dry at home, and I love it when I'm out and it's pounding down on top of my umbrella (or, more often than not, my bare head). We rarely hear rain hit the windows in this apartment. It probably has something to do with the angle of the building and the proximity to other structures around us. So, on those rare days that I can hear the soft slap of rain against the glass, I'm quick to turn off all sound producing machines around me so I can press myself to the north end of our home and listen to that peaceful sound.
I write this because we're having one of those rare evenings. It makes me want to stay up all night.
