The sun sets on another day…
As the sun set, the rain fell, and I got a giggle as I listened to the sound of the rain falling down the eaves, and through the downspouts.
I was reminded of the Disney song, “Drip Drip Drop” in the movie Bambi. Yes, I saw Bambi, a long long time ago. In the song the sound of the rain seems to wash away the fears and the worries and bring back the beauty to the world.
As I sat tonight and listened it seemed to help. the unpredictable bounce of the rain and the near melodic sounds created as the drops bounced off the downspouts. Sure, it was not perfect, but it was close.
How often do we just need to be more simple. To set aside all the fiery problems of the world and listen to something simple, laugh with something less than perfect? Just let go? Take a moment, listen to the rain, stare at the stars, be a part of something less complex, and enjoy the moments of the day. In the end it will be worth it.
So as the sun sets on another day, ahhhh. It was a good sunset, even though it wasn’t there, the rain in Spain fell mainly on the plain, and the rain here, well, it made me smile. That in itself was worth it.
Sleep sweet, love deeply, and laugh the night away…
