Songs About Rain

It's another rainy day in Houston. I forgot about all the summer showers that pop up out of nowhere and cool down the hot concrete for a few... minutes. Haha. I love it! I've always been a sucker for the rain, mainly thunderstorms. I was afraid of storms as a kid. I would somehow get caught on my bike a few miles away from home right before the thunder and lightning started cracking. I guess being a little scared was smarter than I realized. Now the storms are very calming to me. They're a great excuse to read, write, nap, eat... you get the picture. I've yet to write a song about the rain. I know, I know, there are a bazillion songs already written and probably being wrote as I type this entry. There's something about writing songs about nature that makes me feel connected, even if they're never heard by any ears but mine. Cheers to the rain and writing about it ...may it make double rainbows over the city everyday!
