Rain makes the whole landscape look fresh, green, and glistening. While people huddle under their umbrellas, trying to get to work, the child inside wants to throw away their rain gear and enjoy the pinpricks of raindrops on their face and the puddles that follow.
Water is the elixir of life, and those of us lucky enough to enjoy regular rain may not recognize how remarkable it really is. Rain is the source of our food, the only liquid we use to stay clean and healthy, and very possibly the reason life evolved on Earth. It's also the source of wonderful songs such as Singing in the Rain, Umbrella, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head and so many others.
Next time the drops start to fall, soak yourself in the pure, unadulterated drizzle and let your worries wash away. Hum a tune as you walk in the rain, and feel your spirit soar. Share these rain quotes with your friends and help the rain god cast a spell of magic.
