Happiness is Rain in the Desert

Happiness is Rain in the Desert

rainI love the rain, I always have, some of my best memories from childhood are sitting on my front porch in the summer while it rained like a fire hose.  It was always amazing right after the rain would finish, the most amazing smell would rise.  I loved it, it’s a sensory memory that triggers the most amazing feelings in me.

I live in the desert now, and for the first time since I’ve lived here, today there were little patches of rain this morning.  The smell after rain here is completely different, there was actually a smoky character to the air.  It was no less pleasant of a smell, but it was incredibly different than the one from childhood, but it took my brain back to those days, those less complicated and simple days, where I had the time and the inclination just to hang around for the smell rain.  Have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
