Today, I’m playing hooky from work, opting instead to watch the rain through the back windows, slurping coffee from a never-ending mug, writing and reading. The back door is open – I love the smell of rain, especially after a long, dusty summer.  Perhaps, at some point, I’ll gather the impetus to get some things done, but, for right now, I’m enjoying my lazy autumn afternoon.


One thought on “Impetus

  1. My great aunt was a window watcher … as was my Mother … as I am. I can stare out of the window for extended periods of time: I’m not sure if I like staring, outside, weather, the light, dreaming of other places, noticing small change, people walking by, being nosey, or just like to stare at glass … but am trying to fool myself with all those other reasons.; but it’s an underrated hobby.

    note: I had an Apocalypse Now (Robert Duvall) moment when you wrote “I love the smell of rain”.
