finally!

30 Aug

I’ve never been so thankful to see it rain before, ever.  It made me smile and think of these things.

•  The Morton’s salt girl.  One of my favorite logos of all time (my advertising background coming out) and I remember we always had a box of it in the cabinet at home as a kid and I have a box in my own kitchen right now. 

 

•  One of my favorite poets as a child and even still, RLS. 

The rain is raining all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.

Robert Louis Stevenson

•  The Bible verse, Matthew 5:45
“….for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
I can never hear or read that verse without adding the phrase, “and sometimes, it just rains” to the end.  I remember my dad saying that and it always made me laugh.  Still does.

    Oooh, Ooooh, I’ve got one!

    “Love, rain o’er me” The Who, Quadrophenia. I love that song; whenever I hear it I’m reminded of how powerful an emotion love, especially teenage romantic love, can be.

    […] Finn’s happy to see the rain, as are most of us. I’m happy to see it, too, but it has made my body do strange things, like vacillate between being sick and being not sick. I think it’s shocked by the sudden temperature and atmospheric change. […]
