Pluviophile: (n) a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days
This picture up above was taken in New York but someone could’ve mistaken it would be DC! Lately, it’s been quite a rainy spell in the DC area. There are moments where even the weather app on my phone can’t predict the looming dark rain clouds coming up ahead but my favorite part of the rain is when it first hits the ground…There is a certain smell that it gives off where a single drop pounds upon the earth, lifting off the earth and dust into the air. It’s the kind of musty smell that I can tolerate and embrace after a long summer day. There are also moments where the sound of rain just tingles my senses in a way that allows me to drift off into daydreaming sitting next to a window and just drinking something hot and comforting. Ah, but alas, I am transported back in front of the monitor in the office as I yearn to stay dry on my way home. Rain is nice every once in a while. How do you like the rainy weather?
I’ve been playing around with a couple of my series by updating a few bits and pieces but I think I’ll stick to this format for awhile :) The building captured pretty much sums up that one word, even if it doesn’t say anything…hence Silent Giants! The rain must’ve gotten my creative juices running…
