Weather – There is something so amazingly, deliciously exhilarating and refreshing about weather. It is cleansing, exciting, and pulsating with life. My skin tingles, my senses are heightened. I rush to the windows to look out, my eyes open wide with wonder. It makes me feel so ALIVE. I love all weather – rain, snow, hail, sleet, clouds, wind, thunder, and lightning. There is something about weather that resonates deep within me.
I think the reason I love weather so much is that there is such LIFE to it – and it instantly pulls me into the NOW moment and I am FULLY PRESENT. Nothing else exists at that moment. I feel more alive and absolutely present during active (non-sunny) weather than at any other time. And that is so unbelievably exhilarating.
Cold, rainy days are deliciously wonderful and refreshing and invigorating. The rain is cleansing and fresh. I love to see, hear, feel, and smell the rain – I always rush to a window to gaze out at the torrents of water. I love watching the drops hitting the pavement, the pool, or the street. I love hearing the tapping hoof beats of rain pounding on the roof, on the cars, and on the windows, and smelling it in the air.
Lightning and thunder is felt deep in my core with pounding, tremendous power, and all my senses are heightened. I love the awe that arises from my gut when seeing hail. I love the peaceful comforting beauty of soft white snow, blanketing the landscape, the cold biting into my cheeks.
Here in Southern California, the weather is truly beautiful most of the time, with warm sunny days almost every day, but I do long for more thunderous, explosive, strong, active weather. Weather that wakes me up. Weather that makes me feel ALIVE and EXHILARATED and PRESENT.
There is nothing like it – and I look forward to more of that.
Do you enjoy all kinds of weather?
