|I stopped to take this photo on my run.|
This morning I felt like a run. I looked up at the sky. It had blue patches, white clouds and darker clouds. Still - I decided to go without raincoverage. Rain has been the big topic around here this summer. It was around 9 o'clock and I decided to take the route around the lake nearby. It was a quiet morning. Weekend mode. A woman crossed the street in front of me on her way to the busstop. I met a father pushing a pram. A grandmother had found a place near the lake with a thermos and two toddlers playing around her. I met two other joggers both dressed for rain. This has been the coldest, wettest summer for a long time around here and we are all talking about it. It is green and lush evreywhere around me. I pass by an old man who is painting his garden fence and I think - that looks promising - probably no rain forecast. I go on to think how lucky I am. Everything around me is peaceful and quiet. I don't feel threathened in any way. I can feel, believe, think and basically say what I want. I can go home and take a long hot shower with no restrictions. And I can drink as much water as I like straight from the tap without getting ill. We are so lucky to have problems like rain falling from the sky all summer long.
Happy weekend to all.
