It rained today. That steady misty kind of rain that is just annoying enough to circumvent plans. I was having a lazy Sunday when my laziness developed into loneliness. This doesn’t always happen but when it does, it hits hard.
And so, after a morning of YouTube video watching and an overall feeling of restlessness, I put on my coat, a hat and boots and went for a walk – in the rain. I found a little coffee shop, grabbed a soy cappuccino and spent the next two hours, walking, thinking and enjoying the weather. Relishing in the mist that covered my coat and refreshed me.
I walked to the English Garden and kicked around through every pile of leaves I could find. I felt refreshed. I felt loved. I felt a little less lonely and well taken care of – by myself.
