update: rain



What is it about the quiet that comes after a storm that seems so beautiful? It's like everything that happened moments before becomes so minute. You start to appreciate the beauty of the little things- a small dog yapping a few miles away, the sound of bustling traffic slowly gaining pace and the precise shrieking of the neighbor's broom sweeping in a new day. I've never seen a morning quite like this before. How could it have been just there- hiding in plain sight?

When it rains for two whole years, one cannot help but appreciate the first spot of dry land.

  2. Scientifically speaking, after a rain/typhoon/storm there's lots of negative ions around. Its what makes you feel refreshing inside and out. =)

    Syet, feeling matalino ako. LOL! =)

    Love the pic! =)

  5. the countryside, ocean, etc., when not totally polluted, naturally has more negative ions floating around than positive which is why city people tend to feel refreshed by going to a province for a short vacation.

  10. on negative ions (shet, thread na ito): negative ions, which generally enhance the mood, are freed up from the rest of the molecules when water is flowing. which explains why some people feel calm when it's raining, and why some establishments (like hotels) have fountains. *pedant mode* LOL.
