“It was a lovely day.”

“It was a desperate day.”

I don’t give a fudge about the weather. Why? Because I’m very grateful to live in a place where we don’t suffer from, major flooding (Indonesia, India, Bangladesh, United States), tornados (United States, Canada, Bangladesh), hurricanes (United States, Cuba, China), wild fires (United States, Indonesia, Australia, Portugal), or severe drought (Sudan, Ethiopia, Afghanistan).

Instead we have soft rain, fresh/grand/mild/close days. Sometimes there’s a chill in it, or there’s a bitter northerly wind. Some days it’s rotten out. We have drizzle, we have sun splitting the stones, we have some days when it’s lashing agus lá breá ann.

Get a waterproof hat, and jacket, and pants, and shoes/boots. Get out and enjoy it. Enjoy the sounds and smells of the rain. Feel life.

Less whinging, more living.
