Rain, all day today. So much, flowers and leaves droop from the weight.

The quiet of rain throughout the neighborhood. A sleepy world. Windows and doors open to gather the fragrance of moisture and earth.

A day for reading, writing, contemplation. Meditation on desire.

Desire: wish, want, aspiration, inclination, impulse; yearning longing, craving, hunger; eagerness, enthusiasm, determination; yen, itch; lust, passion, sensuality.

What we desperately want. Or think we want.

And find ourselves pursuing, running like mad through the rain.


Desire is the very essence of man.
--Baruch Spinoza
