2nd April 2020
Lying down on my bed while the littlest has a nap and the older two watch some afternoon tv, I listen to the reassuring rain falling gently on our roof.
My senses are all heightened these days and the tapping of those raindrops soothes with its wonderfully familiarity.
There is something about the way those raindrops fill up the soundscape as I pause to listen, allowing my attention to be fully absorbed by it. Something about it just eases my mind a little. The constant worried chatter in my head is drowned out as I simply listen to the rain, and the birds and that lone plane.
It’s so nice to pause and listen and contemplate something else other than this virus and its never ending far reaching effects.
