” Rain, rain, rain beautiful rain…”  This is the  beginning  of a song by Ladysmith Black Mambazo,  a South African singing group that praises the rain when it comes.  It is a good concept, to be grateful for rain.  Rain in many parts of the world is often in short supply.  Indeed, in our  own country- in California and Oregon it is scarce in the summer.   It is a scary thing.

So, if it rains for a weekend here, I won’t be complaining. I think it is very pretty and comforting. I was sitting underneath a portico  watching the rain  this weekend with a friend, getting ready  to work at an event. “Look”, she said, “it looks like we’re sitting underneath a waterfall”.  It did.  We enjoyed the moment, glad that we were safe and dry.  “Rain, rain, rain beautiful rain”. DSCN3055
