Nature Made It Rain

My wet shoes

These are my soaked shoes from the other day.

I was walking around the neighborhoods one evening, just as most people were returning home from work. It was gloomy and getting ready to rain.

It seemed like an unproductive day because I didn’t make $50,000 for my boss so that my life could feel validated as a contributing human to society. But I did play with a cat that day!

Just as I reached Lake Michigan, it started to downpour.

My umbrella protected me pretty well, except my feet. That’s when my shoes got soaked. And it felt amazing. The rain was warm and it was like an exfoliating foot massage with each squishy step I took.

Santana Supernatural CD

On my walk back, I couldn’t have felt loved by nature more until I encountered a free CD lying on the sidewalk.

Nature works in mysterious ways, even if it is a little old-fashioned. Anyone got a CD player I could borrow?
