Today it rained; the streets overflowed, the wind broke some branches and my car is even more dirty than before. But the plants are greener, the sky is dark and the air is filled with the scent of freshness. I so enjoy the rain here on the island. It is almost as if we have our own little but of autumn (without the cold and the jackets). Remember to feel the rain.
