A Day of Rain...

A rainy day is my favorite kind of day. It started raining here last night, and it's been raining all day today. Been enjoying the mood, and the creative energy I always feel on a day like today. So peaceful and centering. The first picture in this post is one I took early this morning. I needed to venture out to the grocery store, and was moved to snap some pictures at a marina not far from here. There were fog advisories on the weather channel. Couldn't pass up the opportunity. The rest of the post is just me spreading around the rainy vibe. Enjoy...

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Let the rain kiss you.
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.
Let the rain sing you a Lullaby."

"The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you'd just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency."
~ Susan Allen Toth

"The rain began again. It fell heavily, easily, with no meaning or intention but the fulfilment of its own nature, which was to fall and fall."
~ Helen Garner

"There's always a period of curious fear between the first sweet-smelling breeze and the time when the rain comes cracking down."
~ John DeLillo

"Under my head till morning; but the rain
Is full of ghosts tonight, that tap and sigh
Upon the glass and listen for reply..."
~ Edna St Vincent Millay

"A rainy day is a perfect time for a walk in the woods."
~ Rachel Carson

"Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet."
~ Roger Miller

"Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth;
without rain, there would be no life."
~ John Updike

"Don't threaten me with love, baby.
Let's just go walking in the rain."
~ Billie Holiday

"I believe in running through the rain and crashing into the person you love and having your lips bleed on each other."
~ Billy Bob Thornton

"I think fish is nice, but then I think that rain is wet,
so who am I to judge?"
~ Douglas Adams

"It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent."
~ Dave Barry


  1. Savannah has made me love and crave rainy days... Something about this place when is raining is wonderful. I too get creative and able to center.
    I lit candles in my living room about 2pm, read and now catching up on my fellow bloggers...Next is homemade soup perfect excuse to eat something hearty and yummy. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  2. Rain, candles, and homemade soup...sounds like a wonderfully sublime day. If I had my druthers, I would wish for rain every day. It just fosters my favorite creative I would welcome on a more permanent basis. :)

    Enjoy your Sunday. Since there will be football in the other room, I shall be alternating my time between the kitchen and the computer. Football is not really my thing...

  3. Found you on NetworkedBlogs. This is a great-looking blog - very atmospheric!

  4. Thanks, Deborah! Nice to meet you. :)

  5. Western Wind, when will thou blow?
    The small rain down can rain.
    Christ, if my love were in my arms
    and I in my bed again.

  6. Very of the classics.
