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.
