raingirl.jpgOur blog sister Therese Borchard often quotes a piece of her mother’s wisdom: “Don’t sit around waiting for the storm to be over.  Instead, learn how to dance in the rain.”

Well, here in Boston, it’s been raining for 4 solid days.  I’m talking, serious, constant, thank-God-we-have-a-sump-pump raining. 

So instead of going out of my mind, I’m heeding Therese’s advice and contemplating ways to dance in the rain. 

A fun place to start is with this new Beliefnet quiz: Songs About Rain.  You’ll find Eurythmics, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Nash, and Simon & Garfunkel in the mix.  Please feel free to suggest additional questions in the combox!

After you do, keep the dance-in-the-rain spirit going by looking back at Valerie’s original list of songs about rain, and checking out my 25 ways to stay happy on a rainy day.

How do you keep your bliss when the rain is pouring down?

Because I lack an engineering degree and don’t understand why we can’t just stop this thing NOW with a 10-ton wad of gum or giant boulder or massive Q-tip, I’ll share more spiritual wisdom from elders.

“Worry is a prayer for something you don’t want.” – Sharon Gannon I love that. The other day someone expressed concern about my excessive worrying habit, and I’ve been contemplating on it ever since. Doing my best to actually contemplate, rather than worry. I’ve been on a renewed Gilmore Girls binge lately and last night as Lorelai, […]
