Fall Rain

Music for dull weather, full of inspiration.
Great to begin your day with.

Winter is around the corner and along with it in BC, dull skies and wet weather
which we seem to have way too much of.

For the young it means cuddling up with a loved one and
for the old it means achy bones and hoping for sunnier days.

As you watch the very young at play, you remember days when you also walked in the rain, felt the wet grass between your toes, and played in puddles.You remember
skimming rocks in ponds, the sounds of little frogs and tad poles swimming between
the stones wiggling their little tails.

You remember camping days, surrounded by a forest
and from your shelter, be it a tent, RV or cabin, smelled life all around you in soft moss,
mint, and rotting wood.

The swaying of the trees in a strong breeze, made the leaves whisper their secrets, as they quietly dropped from on high, providing a soft red carpet at your feet to greet and invite you into their glorious domain.
Beyond these walls is life ever lasting, children, laughter, camaraderie,singing birds, and the perfect quiet and peace one needs to enrich the soul and especially love.

It makes one wonder why, when nature has all this to offer, man plunders and turns her into a cemented jungle, devoid of the true smells of life.

Have great day!!

Ah, youth! Thanks for the the beautiful reminder of the joys of youth. It's a shame we can't be content with these simple, but wonderful, things. They sure beat concrete.

diane welcome
I love fall especially in the east where they have so many maple trees.
The west is full of pine and so the colors are mainly yellow and green
and hardly any reds.

Everything in this world has its own beauty (including dull weather), just not everyone sees it. What's the beauty of dull weather? Well, hmm... well...
