It was lucky that the rain was only moderately heavy and drizzling most time otherwise some areas in this district would be flooded. Most people should be happy to stay indoor and enjoying hot coffee. No worries.
But on the first day it was really heavy. In the evening when it really started pouring I was midway in my walk. There was no place I could take shelter except the trees but I was scared of the possible thunder and lightning.
I walked on in heavy rain, really heavy , heavy rain. I was drenched, soaked to the skin. At first I tried to rush then I was thinking why should I it could cause more anxiety which possibly would trigger pounding and palpitation in my heart.
And so I continued walking not even trying to quicken my pace. Not even trying to avoid the puddles of water forming in my path. Just redah saje . There was rain everywhere so might as well enjoy it. Let it rain . Let it rain.
|Part of my track on fine day|
Remember when we were small that time, we liked to play in the rain. Were we not delighted as we played on the wet field or in the padi field, in my case. We ignored the worrying parents who would be yelling asking us to get inside.
As adults we always want the umbrellas. We always worry when clouds start to thicken. We open the umbrellas even when the rain has yet to come. What is this life if it's full of worries.
If you are caught in heavy rain like that don't run for shelter, just enjoy it and reminisce about your childhood time playing in the rain. Only thing is now you might worry about your new jogging shoes or the telephone in your pocket which all would get soaked. My i phone was ok anyway after wiping and the shoes I blew with a hair drier after getting rid of the excess water and letting it stand for a night. No problem.
Now I don't know whether there's still rain in my area for I am in a different place. Was suddenly "uprooted" from my home to here, where I am completing this writing now. About 70 kilometers from home. And here too the rain drizzles on.
Let's hope the rain brings us blessings not misery.
