The sound of rain at night

April 13th, 2014, 3pm

It was the first spring rain and I decided that it was time to put my hardly ever worn rain boots to good use, so I headed towards State street, umbrella in tow.

For someone who comes from a country with only two seasons - wet and dry- I find it hard to appreciate the rain. The puddles and mud, wet socks and shoes… not to mention it can be the biggest trip and party pooper ever.

But tonight I gave it a chance… a little rain shouldn’t hurt.

It was just a light drizzle when I left my apartment but when I was done with my Target run it decided to break into a shower.

I decided to wait it out at this very spot, watching and listening to the pouring rain. I’ve waited in the rain a million times so this should be something so familiar. But for the first time, this constant pitter-patter was actually quite soothing.. calming.. It felt good.

Crossing out items on my bucket list one moment at a time. I enjoy trying new things, chocolate, benches with a view, chasing sunsets, taking long walks and documenting every moment of it.
