Rain...

It rained today!

As much as I love the rain, the weather here today was simply amazing... The day was a little cloudy, and quite windy. The afternoon was perfect, a light breeze with the smell of rain that may come down any minute, the clear air, the soft sunlight, and a feeling that this day was made for me.

The weather reminds me of the many lazy summer afternoons spent playing hide and seek or swimming or just reading a book, soaking in the smell of the drenched earth after a thundershower. I don't know what it is with the rain and me, but when it rains, I feel like it was sent down especially for me. It feels like pure magic. It captivates me with its magical spell and leaves me wanting for more...

Sometimes there are things in life which we take for granted and don't wait to think twice about the wonder that it is. Sometimes these are the very things that make life woth living...

I remember reading somewhere  - "Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away..."

I guess this was one such day, and these were such moments, and I wish that everyone has more of such memories to treasure...
