It's pouring rain outside as I write this - a rare but welcome occurrence here in Southern California. Makes me want to stay inside and read all day.
It's nice that a week ago half the country was under a foot of snow and it was 70 degrees here. I moved to California from the Midwest, and there are things I miss about it, but never once the winters.
Though I do wonder sometimes what we lose when we exist outside of changing seasons. The seven years I've lived here stretch into one long summer, and whatever growth I've experienced, whatever events have marked my life, have had largely the same backdrop: warm, sunny weather.
It makes me thankful for the rain - little reminders, sometimes only a few hours long, that change is the only constant.
That's all I've got for today - Have a great week.
