Just for today, I’m going to look up at the sky. I am amazed to think how rarely I even look up to see the vast expanse above me, and notice it. Today it is heavy with a soft gray cloud cover, which I hope means rain. I can barely remember what rain is. What the smell of the first drops is like, splattering on cocrete and releasing the wonderful scent into the air.
I am waiting, hoping for rain, as I watch the sky.
