Rain

Incessant, ceaseless, constant, continual, continuous, endless, interminable, nonstop, perpetual, relentless, unceasing, unending, unrelenting, unremitting, monotonous, torrential rain.

I awoke to the sound of rain and it has not stopped all day. I drank my morning coffee and ate my brunch of sausage and beans to the sound of falling rain. I swam two hours from 12:15 to 14::15 in the rain. I put in the extra half hour because I thought I might actually complete 100 lengths. I did it. New record. Thanks to finger paddles.

I had the pool to myself when I first arrived. As I swam I was joined by only two other swimmers. Neither of them stayed longer than thirty minutes. I doubt the pool covered its costs today.

It’s a chilly 22C this afternoon. I’m wearing a warm pullover. I think it may be time for Netflix and a nap.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
