It’s only annoying that it rains if you’re trying to stay dry.
That’s my zen thought of the day. The last few days have been rainy, which has been a total relief, and I’ve spent a fair amount of time getting wet with a giant smile on my face. And as I biked to Mt Tabor today to go running, getting clothes-plastered-to-me saturated even in the approximately 8 minutes that it takes to ride to the park, I thought: if I were trying to stay dry I would be sad right now, but because I left the house fully expecting to get soaked, I don’t mind at all.
Embrace the wet. Let it run down my face. Let it soak into my socks as I splash through puddles. Feel it drip down my back. Be a little kiddo running around with my eyes up to the sky and a big, goofy grin on my face. That is my current way of embracing this new, more fall-like version of fall.
James gives me shit sometimes because I often say “I love this weather!!” — to which he responds that I say that about any weather, so it’s not exactly a revelation that I say so. Which I guess is basically true. But man, if you love any weather, you’re always gonna be happy, right? That’s my second zen thought of the day: embrace it all, and you’ll be ready for anything:)
Tu aimes le temps. You love weather. Period. Moi aussi. That’s one sad thing about Sacto — no weather. Ever.
