Invisible sun

April 5, 2017 - 4:14pm
"Here comes the sun"...nope. "Sunshine, on my shoulders" "Let the sunshine in"...absolutely not. "The sun will come out, tomorrow"...and again, nope. Sigh. Around here lately it's all been "ain't no sunshine" and "here comes the rain again." I'm pretty much over gray skies and dreary days. I need some bright rays in my life. I mean, I'm really, really over it. I'm over it as in the-doc-prescribed-huge-amounts-of-Vitamin-D-supplements over it. I spent an entire day - nine full hours - driving in the rain last weekend. And when I drove home? You guessed it - raining again. I know the whole "April showers" thing, but this is really making me grumpy. Sorry, I "blame it on the rain." I'm also sorry if I've put any earworms into your head. It's just what I do. I often relate things around me with song lyrics. I remember when I was in Zambia on my first trip to Africa. It was lusher than I expected. I stood on my hotel balcony to dry out some clothes I had washed in the sink, when all of a sudden a storm came out of nowhere and the rain came down. Immediately, you know where I'm going with this, I could not get Toto out of my head. I pretty much sang "I bless the rains down in Africa" until the storm had passed. Luckily, it blew through quickly. I remember being surprised that we encountered rain at all. I hadn't expected that on a continent that so often experiences severe droughts. I thought about all the water we have in Michigan and how a drought for us means that our lawns are a little brown in August and we have to use the sprinklers.
