Rain

It's always wonderful when it rains in Southern California. Mainly because it happens so rarely. Life slows down, as if straining to listen, to memorize, the soft rhythm of the raindrops.
Rohan goes, "Raink, raink!"
Raina rushes out, arms aloft and wide, an eager recipient for what the dark clouds may bring. The world greys and glistens, while we dance.
Lights turn on in the daytime, echoing the warm glows inside us. We huddle close, listen to music. I drink tea, and more tea. The kids nap because they feel like napping. And I blog, finally, after months.

Peace...

And finally a rewarding visit to your blog, after months of coming here with anticipation and being disappointed at the lack of updates!

Sorry, Ana and EL. I've just gotten lazy. And then there was a crazy trip to India in December. Still recovering from that ordeal.
