On rainy mornings, 9 am seems like sometime late in the afternoon. Everyone drinking something hot, coffee, chocolate or tea, the lights open and a warm feeling you have from being inside while you see the clouds outside. I would simply love to spend days like this in bed, reading, writing and drinking warm drinks only.
Since K and I bought the transparent umbrella in Bran (the rain had caught us there), I love walking in the rain. It seems you get more light, you see everything, you see people approaching, although they only see bits of you, you look up and see the sky, blurry a bit because of the drops on your umbrella, but the sky is there to enchant your eyes.
And after it had rained for a while and the sidewalk is all shinny, you can also see your reflection while walking. Like in a mirror, seeing another you walking in a different reality with different Physics rules. A travel companion to smile back at you if you smile.
A little drop getting on your face before hiding under the umbrella, the fresher air, it helps you wake up easily. Rainy days are not depressing at all if you learn to enjoy their little pleasures.
