People forget how to drive in the rain. Accident rates seem to go up. We don't know how to react or what to do when it rains. We may even find ourselves standing in the rain looking heavenward, much like turkeys do, endangering ourselves of drowning. Perhaps I exaggerate, but, really, some are much like those turkeys who don't have the sense to come out of the rain...symbolically and metaphorically. Yet the rain, has of late been such a rare occurrence, it truly does get our attention.
So I think I'll go out and splash in a puddle or two. I sing in it and I'll thank God for even a brief respite from the constant aridity that has plagued us. It is promise, we hope, that even droughts don't last forever and, to quote the old adage, "This too shall pass."
