Tears in the Rain

All those moments
will be lost in time,
like tears in the rain.

– Rutger Hauer


The true secret of happiness
lies in taking a genuine interest
in all the details of daily life.

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details


She closed her eyes and listened to the steady rhythm of the rain against the windowpane.

It rained on and on, until the rain tuned the road into a river. It grew deeper and broader, until the sun burst through. Now there were boats sailing on the river, with brightly coloured sails.

She was on holiday in France, going down the Loire and visiting the Chateaux. There was a son-et-lumières display, with fireworks lighting up the sky.

She woke with a start and realised the storm had blown kitchen window open. She really needed to get that latch fixed. Tomorrow.

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
