After a long gap, I rediscovered the joy of walking in the rain with an umbrella today. I avoided main roads as much as possible, but had to deal with stretches of streets that were water logged. Despite the strain of navigating such streets, I felt good. The temporary relief from air pollution coupled with the sound of rain drops hitting my umbrella was very relaxing to the mind.
I think anything that takes us closer to nature tends to be relaxing. And healing. We have come too too far from nature. Think about it.
I hope for more such rain-walks in my life.
