It is presently raining which I really enjoy. Rain is soothing and refreshing providing you’re not working in the rain in the middle of winter. The air becomes buoyant prior to rain fall and the forest ground smells earthy when it drops.
A fantastic children’s story written by Stephen Cosgrove and illustrated by Robin James is Leo the Lop. A 1977 gem, this story lets kids know that individual differences are the beauty of being oneself and that conformity is not always a good idea if you deny yourself your personality and who you are. The pictures are absolutely breathtaking. I’ll have to check out other books written by this author.
