Rainy Days & Writing

It’s a beautiful rainy day. What’s so beautiful about this? The peace and quiet.

For the last week or two a crew has been diligently working to replace the facade roofs of the buildings in my complex. This is a noisy task indeed. And as I’ve mentioned in the past children like screech and screen while they run and play outside. On a normal day it is very noisy here.

The rain changes this. Children stay indoors to play and construction crews take the day off. I don’t question how or why, I am just thankful that the magic of rain subdues people- especially children. A peaceful rain brings peace and stillness to the complex. Even the cats are affected as they are more prone to sleeping and lounging.

Selfishly I think “it’s a perfect day for writing.”
