What a run of beautifully warm, sunny days!
We can of course count on there being some wet days to come – and rain is a necessary part of our survival. Can we enjoy wet days just as much as sunny ones? Wet becomes uncomfortable when one gone gets cold and/or when you end up sitting in damp clothes. But otherwise we tend to veer unnecessarily away from going out in the rain. Waterproofs can keep us dry and getting wet doesn’t really hurt – it can be fun feeling rain drip on to your face. As can watching the rain drip off leaves or run down gullies.
