Rain, Rain....

Good morning. It is a rainy Fall like day here in DC. I think the temperature is around 59 degrees. The weather doesn't bother me, but it makes me feel too relaxed. I like rainy days? I punctuated the previous sentence that way because I really don't understand why? I do know that rainy days remind me of some of my favorite songs like Nina Simone's, I Think It's Going To Rain Today. ".....Broken windows and empty hallways A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray Human kindness is overflowing And I think it’s going to rain today." I know that's too obvious, right. I also think of Marvin Gaye's album, What's Going On. Actually, any Marvin Gaye song will do.

I want to be back in my bed with the sound of the rain gently tapping on my window seal. I get sleepy just thinking about it. I can still feel the breeze from my opened window when I first awoke to the sound of my radio. 5:55 am..it's funny because I saw that time on my clock and declared that this was my lucky day! That's the Capitalist in me thinking about that "paper." I'm not greedy when it comes to money. I just want to be comfortable. You know...just be able to do some of the things that I like to do or wish to do. I don't want much Lord! Can you hear me! I just want a piece of the pie, but I want a big slice! Anyway, these are just random thoughts on a rainy Tuesday morning in May. Embrace the rain! This is a water planet and we can't survive without it. Peace~
