I love laying awake at night with the window open, listening to a soft rain come down. Usually, I lower the blinds and close up the curtains tight, to seal out all possibility of light worming its way into my room. Tonight, though, I'm leaving the window bare and uncovered...wide open to the sound of rain. It's a soothing sound - very restful and peaceful. I'll probably regret this with the sunrise come the morning, but right now, I'm going to let myself be lulled into slumber by the whispering raindrops.
Good night, world. Blessings to one and all.
