Why seek shelter?
A gorgeous woman once told me she’d never seen anyone walk as slowly in the rain. I took this as a compliment. Why seek shelter from a steady spring shower? The drops on my skin enhance perception of the wind. The new leaves pop and the pavement sizzles. The only part I don’t like is when my glasses fog.
I’ve spend most of my life dry and warm why not enjoy the wet chill while I still can?
