a little rain and a change

"Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens." ~Kahlil Gibran

It rained a tiny little bit tonight here- elsewhere in Southern California it was a bigger storm. A rumble of thunder, flash of lightning and a few drops came down with that light 'splatter on the ground sound' that is so pleasing to the ear. It was just enough to leave a few marks on the paving stones and well formed crystal looking drops still clinging to the 'volunteer' palm.

The air is a bit sweeter, cleaner smelling and there is a nice cool breeze coming in through the screen door. My mind is clearer, quieter, calmer, happy even- though I can't pinpoint a single change within- only the weather.
Peverse reaction, maybe.. especially since the weather maps plot multiple storms in the Pacific and the Atlantic- the kind that aren't gentle.
