Woke up this morning with
a terrific urge to lie in bed all day
and read. Fought against it for a minute.
Then looked out the window at the rain.
And gave over. Put myself entirely
in the keep of this rainy morning.
Would I live my life over again?
Make the same unforgiveable mistakes?
Yes, given half a chance. Yes.
The poem “Rain” by Raymond Carver
It’s sad that I remember the last day I did this because it was so long ago…summer of 2010, I was reading Jane Eyre.
