Today was the first day of real rain. I guess it’s a sign that Summer is nearing an end and the Winter weather is on it’s way. Of course I don’t mind the rain too much. It keeps Oregon green, it provides us with necessary water and it cleans the air.
In fact I love the smell of the air after it has rained; so fresh and clean and new. Have you ever listened to one of those recordings of a thunderstorm with the sound of the rain? I find them incredibly peaceful and relaxing. Of course they are not for everyone.
This time of year is also when I start to get that travel bug. OK, when do I not have the travel bug? I’ve got my passport renewed and am ready to go. The world is our playground. We only need to commit to exploring her.
So here is a question. If you could go anywhere in the world for free, where would you go?
