'The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.' ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Photobucket

I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.


I step very softly,

I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand-
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said-
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.


Shel Silverstein

Beautiful image - there's something I just love about images of little ones walking away from the camera. And perfect for today as I sit here in rainy, rainy VA.
