Last night was really stormy! I went for a walk at the beach around dusk and there were definitely storm clouds brewing on the horizon. Just as I was getting ready to tuck in for the night it started to rain...which very quickly turned into a torrential downpour. I stood in the doorway of my studio watching the rain hit the pool and thrash the palm trees around. It made me a little homesick, too. In Hilo the rain hits your tin roof and sometimes it can be deafening. Last night I could barely here the rain! I grew up in an old plantation house - it would start to rain and we'd have to run around the house placing bowls under some of the drips - in the kitchen we could actually see the tin...there was no intermediate ceiling! I think my body is programmed to hear the rain and then go put on snugglie clothes and grab a book! I laid in bed last night with the curtains open and watched it pour...I feel great this morning and I know it's because of the rain!
