I DIDN’T OPEN MY umbrella because I could feel the smallest of all raindrops caressing my face, and landing in my hair, as gentle as the stroke of a lover.
When I walked faster, the raindrops were more distinct and touched my face more firmly. When I slowed down, the raindrops were less distinct, softer and it seemed like they were falling more slowly.
Then I realised, I was controlling the raindrop’s speed.
I stood there in the rain, just revelling in it.
For a while there, it was just me and the raindrops. Nothing else existed. Nothing else mattered.
Hope you have a ‘raindrop experience’ today.
