swimming in the rain. The week after my dad's wedding to his second wife, he and I went running on the beach and swimming in a thunderstorm. I know I know, get out of the water in a thunderstorm. Well, we weren't hit by lightning, and we had so much fun!
The rain pattered around me and bounced off of the surface of the water like millions of tiny bugs. This, I felt, was the most raw way of living. If one couldn't be a child and play in water every now and then... well, what reason had I to ever grow up?
The universe is constantly sending us messages, but to hear them we need to be silent. Messages can come in the form of something we overhear at a coffee shop, or through a heartfelt conversation with a friend. Talk less and you will hear a lot more.
