What is it about rain that makes it so soothing? Is it simply the sound or the idea of dirt and dingy snow being washed away. Is it the sense of renewal; the knowledge that the rain nourishes the soil in preparation for spring?
I think it could be all of those things, along with something intangible , something just beyond human verbal ability. Rain just makes me want to take a nap, drink in some coffee or tea, read a good book, or watch a good movie all at once.
