Oh How I Wish That It Would Rain

The scratchy, soothing voice of Dennis Edwards played from from one of my campy oldies vinyl compilations.  I found it suiting for the current weather condition; gloomy with a chance of sleepiness.

Though my spirits have been up, I find it easy to dwell in melancholy.  I enjoy a somber slumber accompanied with tears.  Maybe I haven’t suffered enough in my life and find it necessary to plunge into pain so I know the difference between its presence and when it’s gone.  Sadness is soothing and sometimes a form of therapy.

NPR correspondents have estimated a current death toll of 10,000 of our brothers and sisters in Japan.  The Tsunami that casted its fait on their country washed away hopes and dreams and left a residue of suffering.  From my dry and cozy flat, my heart and inquisitive mind drifts out to the Japanese people.

I wonder what the artist of the image above, Katsushika Hokusai, would be thinking right now.  I wonder which continent will be next.  I wonder what it must be like to be in a natural disaster.  I wonder what’s ahead of us in the next nine months.  And I wonder when it will stop raining.
