'd'rain, 14th November 2015

rain...
raining rain...
rain raining rain...
it's autumn what do you expect...
there really is no need to state the obvious...
just stand in it and you'll see, you'll feel it, it won't discriminate and leave you dry while soaking everything and everyone else...
rain is what it is... rain...
it's convenient we gave it such a short and concise word... rain...
despite all the many words for different kinds of rain they all at the end of the day come under the umbrella of... rain...
we aren't fish though, even though we came from fish...
imagine if rainwater was saltwater falling into rivers and tumbling down hills and valleys to be diluted in the oceans...
oceans full of freshwater fish and the like... just a thought...
it's also useful we have drains for rain as where else would you drain rain away but into a 'd'rain...
the same thinking doesn't work for trains though... 't'rain... see, doesn't work...
what am I going on about you wonder... me too... sometimes thoughts need to be recognised outside of the head for what they are... rain...
it's still raining...
it's still autumn though nearly winter... the transition will be painless and almost imperceptible...
ask any two people when autumn ends and winter starts and they'll never agree...
some things are just out of our control, no matter how many gadgets we plug into...
