I know summer is officially *gulp* over, but we have the memories. What was your favorite moment of the summer? My favorite moment was in August. It was a gray rainy day outside. Not pouring, but a decent, 'regular' rain. And I love rainy days. I love them. It feels like when it rains, a plastic film gets peeled away from the world and shows it how it really is, not like the fakeness that a sunny day always feels like to me. The whole world felt real and raw and full of life. So I went outside and walked through the deliciously wet grass in the rain, with it hitting my skin in the most wonderful way. I started jumping on the trampoline in our backyard, and every time I would jump water that had absorbed into the mat kept jumping up and hitting me, and every time I did a knee-bounce it would cover my thighs completely. The trampoline made a heavy thumping sound each time I hit it, and jumping high in the air with the rain and the realness and the fullness of it all, it all felt so wonderful because it was summer and it was free of worries. And I started to laugh, laugh like an awed little kid, overjoyed with the world. I bounced and laughed in the rain, and it was wonderful.
