Everything In Its Right Place

When there are certain things you hate, like Sousa marches and hot weather, it is amazingly refreshing to have a moment where their first cousins combine to create what can only be described as perfection. After an intense orchestra rehearsal that began with me going through the motions and ended with me ready and willing to play beyond our 930pm stop time, I headed outside to head home.

Dvorak's New World Symphony was still occupying my brain as I checked my phone for new texts and saw the first droplet of rain plop down on my phone. I may loathe summertime because of the intense heat, but oh how I love its nights when it's both warm and cool at the same time. Tonight there was a breeze and I wished to be sitting on a porch at the beach. Then the rain started plopping down with a higher frequency and, despite my hair getting wet, I slowed down to enjoy it. There's something so great about cool rain when it's warm.

Then I got to my car, only to be welcomed by the song I had been listening to just two and a half hours earlier: Radiohead's "Motion Picture Soundtrack".....I think you're crazy...


Talk about perfection.

Ooh yeah, love that track... "We hope that you choke, that you choke" (or is that the one before it on the album?)

Agree...that hint of rain brings a certain cool to the air - and the scent...makes for perfect sleeping weather! If only...

Strange you should mention Sousa when I wrote a post comparing Elgar's marches to his ... Is it just me or do they all roll into one after a while?

I do love those cool summer nights after a nice sunny warm/hot day =)

Nothing wrong with it raining for a little bit in the evening/night, just to cool things off. Other than that, not a fan of the rain though

DC celine basically said it correctly. If only..

I too love the rainy, warm, summer nights.

Although last Friday we got stuck in the craziest downpour ever as we were sitting outside eating dinner. It was like drop, drop, FLOOD.

In fact, I think I saw two of every animal walking down the street at one point. (TM Senor Beavis)
