Yes, I’ve seen the rain. Many times. And I don’t know who’ll stop it, but I know it’s fascinating especially when you add some music to it. I assume if you’re reading this you might already be old enough to let weather influence your mood, activities, any sort of habits, and pretty much the course of your life, cyclically. So I say when you see those grey clouds, why oppose and not blend in?
