Next Time....Installment #1

The next time it rains, stop what you're doing and go stand outside. It doesn't matter what time of the day or night. Just take a short little break and let the drops bounce against your face as you count to five.

Next, stop counting and just stand there. Try not to think of anything except the distance that those little droplets of water had to travel for the privilege of caressing your skin.

Lastly, open your eyes, look at the sky and ask yourself "Why the hell am I still out in the rain???" Then go inside, for Pete's sake, you don't want to catch a cold.

Just a note...I actually did this today. It was in the middle of Hillsboro, in a movie theater parking lot, and I imagine that passers-by thought I was strange...but I did it. It was a grounding experience.
