I took a long run in the rain, the hood of my raincoat down. Getting your face and hair totally wet is so refreshing, and I can only imagine the rain must be so life-giving for all of the plants and animals as well. There is something to be said for enjoying the earlier hours of the day, too... Ben says I still have the sleep schedule of a teenager, preferring to stay up late and sleep in half the day. But there is such excitement and energy in the morning: I'm hoping enough to make an earlier rise time a habit around here.
