Ah, blessed relief, blessed rain. You have so beautifully said what I feel in October when the rains come back to the island after a summer of heat and drought and the fear of fire. That feeling of disbelief when the first drops hit the steel roof - running outside to smell the damp.I love the thought of savouring the green silence.
"Running outside to smell the damp" - that's exactly what I do!! It's maddening, that earthy scent, isn't it?! The green silence reminds me of the mossy, wet greenness of the Pacific Northwest. Sigh!
Hello SumanI love the joy you have expressed as you welcome the rain.May your weekend be specialHelen xx
