Rain and rainbows

Everybody wants happiness,
Nobody wants pain,
But you can’t have a rainbow
Without a little rain.

Elephant in a raincoat

Hmmm…

 

I normally won’t post images in which people have posed, clothed, or otherwise treated animals like dolls that can be toyed with, but I’m making an exception for this one, since the elephant probably doesn’t much care.

 

I have just one question:  Why would an elephant need a raincoat?  LOL!

Criticism

 

Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.

Good Weather

 

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
– John Ruskin

[Janet’s Note: People who were affected by Superstorm Sandy, please do not take offense; I was one of you. This quotation refers to ordinary weather, like today’s rainy day, NOT hurricanes and the like.]

Dance in the rain

 

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.

A cozy rainy day

It’s a cozy rainy day. The earth takes nourishment as the moisture cools and replenishes the earth, and brings water directly to the plants and wildlife. The air smells rich and full. The sound of the rain is even more soothing than the roaring surf, more like a gentle brook.

 

In a conversation with Jim (my husband) a few weeks ago, I remarked about the fact that the eagles that I follow on videocam (Decorah eagles) seem to just take rain in stride. Even in the worst storms, with the nest 80 feet up in a tree rocking to and fro like the lullaby we all know (until we humans are sure the bows will break), they seem to just hunker down and ride it out. I pondered whether animals might actually view rainy days as days of peace. With everyone snuggled down, even the predators, for the most part, seem to take the day off. Our bird feeders are being visited by only a few souls, and only during the lulls. Wouldn’t it be nice to relax in the nest and be able to drop your guard for a just a little while and just “be”?

 

It’s a cozy rainy day, not an ugly one. Get cozy in your nest, whether that’s at home or at work, or get out your umbrella and go for a walk, or just go out and dance in the rain. :-)

 

I’ve got a window open next to my desk, and I’m about to settle in and work on today’s Curiosities posts to the sound of the rain.

Watercolor rain

Put paint tape to cover the place to stencil, put paint filled balloons around canvas, pop with darts, let dry, use stencil to add silhouette.

If you haven’t heard this before, it’s worth the time to hear. They imitate the sound of rain within the music. Awesome stuff!
