By 4pm yesterday, my portfolio was done and handed in. As I started leaving, even before I reached the doors, I stopped midstep and stood there for a second.
"Is it raining??" I asked out loud, partially to myself, partially to anyone that would be willing to answer.
A guy cutting his mats, answered, "Yeah, it just started."
I could smell it. There's something about the smell of a fresh rain-moisture and earthiness mingled together-that seems almost primordial-as if it's ingrained in our very cells. But then again, maybe it's just me!!
Normally, I'm not happy about the rain, but this rain we're having now is good. It's bringing some much needed moisture both to the earth and to me-and it didn't bring colder weather either! If it were a bit warmer, I think I'd just sit outside in it!!
