It suits my mood and is bound to affect my writing.
There are days when you write like you feel.
Wet and miserable.
But as a major contradiction, I actually like the rain. The pattering of raindrops on the roof and on the leaves of the foliage outside the window, the droplets running down the glass of the windows.
It has a calming effect
Then there is the wind.
It can have the un-nerving effect, sort of like the wailing of a banshee.
Or a sort of humming sound as it blows through the electricity lines.
Or has the effect, of a cold day, of cutting through your clothes and chilling you to the bone, more so if you are soaking wet.
Or when the wind blows the rain sideways, and you can feel it on your skin like a shower of frozen icicles.
It’s the sort of weather for staying inside, rugged up by the fire with a large cup or mug of hot tea and cookies, reflecting on when the good weather will return.
It reminds me of a set of allegories I read about a long time ago,
Winter – sad
Spring – hope
Summer – happy
Autumn – reflective
Perhaps it is a little early for me to be reflective, because where I live, Autumn is just around the corner.
Oh well, it’s time to get back to work!
