I usually don't cheer for rain, but I usually don't boo either. It would be a waste of time for each actually, as we get a larger share of rain than a lot of places; and I have more important things to do than be a weather watcher. But tonight is different.
It started raining late this afternoon and I was smitten with the whole idea. Now I know that seems strange but it is because.............................
I like the quiet that the rain brings.
I work in a noisy environment and when I come home I really just want some quiet. Peace and quiet actually, but I will settle for the quiet.
Work is noisy.
We have ringing phones that do not seem to stop,
and overhead paging about who is needed on the phone.
We have various alarms that are meant to help as they sound off when someone is in an unsafe position or area.
We have folks that are not able to do much talking, but they do yell.
We also have folks that do not do much listening, so others apparently need to talk louder and louder.
Then there is a second or third page that is heard over the intercom,
and yet another phone call.
We have Ambulances arriving to help,
we have inquiries about transportation and appointments and medications.
and more phone calls,
and more paging,
and so, I usually just want some peace and quiet when I get home.
I have actually come to realize that I don't want to do much talking when I first get home, I just want to take in some peace and quiet, like it was vital to life.
And I guess really it is. I think the quiet helps me gather myself back, back from the noise.
Thanks for visiting.
