I'm a certified pluviophile!  I find it very peaceful and restorative when it rains. Maybe it has something to do the day I was born. My late Mama used to tell me that it was raining cats and dogs when she delivered me at home. 

On days like this, I'm amazed at the beauty of every raindrop when it hits the leaves and the ground. The sound of rain calms my super active mind.

Although I find joy and peace of mind when it rains, it worries me nowadays because of flooding  and other natural calamities that comes with it.  

* Pluviophile (noun), a lover of rain, someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days

"Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; 
without rain, there would be no life."
- John Updike


  1. I love not just the sound of the rain but the scent it brings especially after it ended. Not the destructive ones though but as what you said , the restorative ones.

  2. who wouldn't love rain and the sound of the rain as it drops in the roof of the house... aah that feeling.. so I'm a pluviophile too. thanks for the new word to add to my vocabulary. :)


Thank you for the joyful comments!
