Rainy Days

Rainy days are good to reconnect with yourself...to sit and read a book with the window open slightly. The smell of rain not only relaxes the body and mind but it also is a gift from Mother Earth. It is renewal, it is refreshing, it is life giving and makes the whole earth smile. I am physically at work today but in my mind, I am a little bit disconnected. Have you ever been somewhere and wish you were somewhere else? Yes, that is me today. I am living in the moment, but the moment I yearn to be in is walking outside barefooted without a hat on and to stand on Mother Earth and twirl in the grass with arms out to my side taking it all in. I want to feel the rain hit my face, soak my skin and renew my soul. A cleansing of sorts...a fasting of the spirit. I want it to wash away everything except moments of joy and the feeling of wonder. How we take things for granted...it is time to look deeper and appreciate the gifts our Mother Earth gives us. What a wonder it all is on this rainy day. Peace...
