For some listening enjoyment, for a few minutes...nice background music on the topic.
It's raining today - this is the second day in a row we've gotten a little bit of rain. That is a small miracle. I was beginning to think I was transported to Arizona with humidity there, for awhile - everything has to be watered when it's like this (if you want it to NOT die, that is, including yourself). It's nice, refreshing to have a little rain.
The area we live in keeps our car almost white with dust. Our street gets grated every month or two. It's very quiet out here when it rains...I like that. Rain stops the 4-wheelers in their tracks. The critters (squirrels, birds) are so happy it's raining they are staying out in it to forage.
This song, it reminds me of the solitude I'd feel in the cold rain in Oregon. It's nice I can get that feeling back every once in awhile, almost on command. This band, Concrete Blonde, is truly an all time favorite...and, they invoke a lot of memories for me.
