At last! Rain! We’re relieved of our regular duty to go for a bike ride! The rain welcomes a restful Saturday morning, lingering over coffee, breakfast, the computer. And listening to a CBC classical music webcast. If the sun were shining I would have felt compelled to be out-of-doors, exercising. Not that bicycling is something I dislike doing, not at all. But when I have the opportunity – or should I say, the excuse – not to do so, I embrace it. The rain subdues me.
