We had more rain on Saturday. Thankfully this thunderstorm didn’t lead to me spending nearly 2 hours curled up on the floor in my closet with pillows, my laptop and phone letting family know I was safe, but that the tornado sirens were still blaring outside my windows.
And as long as storms don’t reach that capacity, I enjoy rainy days, especially when they happen over the weekend and it means I can curl up in my chair with a cup of hot coffee or tea (or both) and just write.
Honestly, I think rainstorms, aside from making me want to curl up under a blanket and watch a movie, they bring out my creativity. As I sat there writing on Saturday, I also found myself drawn to all sorts of other creative projects, whether that be photography, sewing or music. It’s almost like a landslide of creativity, as the water rushes through the sky, so do the creative juices through my blood.
To make it even better, I found the perfect soundtrack for a rainy day as I pulled up “Landslides” by Zara Kershaw. The music filled my ears (blocking out the beeping smoke detector somewhere in the building – don’t worry, I submitted a ticket to maintenance to replace) and I wanted nothing more than to just spend my day inside and soaking up as much of my creative side as I could.
