It’s Raining

It’s very unusual for it to rain so early in October in this part of the world.   And yet, it obviously happens.   


I’m sitting here on a Friday night, very close to closing my eyes and drifting off.   Very early in the evening for me.   I am listening to the sounds of the cars driving by on the wet streets.   

Maybe it’ll bring a fresh start tomorrow.   It never hurts to have a do over.   

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the past year, about the losses, about my health, and about the many changes.  

It seems appropriate that the rain is coming down tonight.  


I know this probably seems like some random, incoherent stream from my brain, and it is.   


I just feel like things are changing now.   And the coincidence of this rain just happens to be a good metaphor.   

So, hopefully this rain will wash away what’s been weighing me down, and I can have my fresh start.
