We were hit with a sudden deluge of giant warm raindrops today as we were leaving the arena. We ran across the parking lot to the car so we wouldn't get wet. By the time we got home it was coming down even harder. We pulled into the garage. We were going to go inside, but something happened. The rhythmic beat of the rain on the pavement beckoned us. All other sounds disappeared. Alyssa went first, then the rest of us followed. We ran out into the downpour and danced around. I'm sure our neighbors gazed upon us with raised eye brows. Our clothes were dripping and our shoes were soggy. But the warm water nourished our souls. Back inside we changed clothes and dried off quickly, but the exhilaration of doing something different will stay with us all.
Sorry my posts have been irregularly scheduled, it's been crazy around here lately. I will try to be more consistent in August.
