Tulad ng binanggit ko sa nauna kong post in August 2013 (please read https://clinquantlife.wordpress.com/2013/08/02/bakasyon/ ) noong ako ay 5 months nang extended for my vacation at tinanong ako ng Boss kung puwede pa akong extend. Ilan sa mga dahilan ko na kailangan kong magbakasyon aside from privilege ko iyon ay Kailangan ko ring makakita ng luntiang kapaligiran. Kailangan kong maranasan ang mamitas ng prutas sa puno, ng gulay ng sariwang bulaklak. Kailangan kung muling maranasan ang MALIGO SA ULAN.
Isang araw nung nakaraang bakasyon, ay bumuhos ang malakas na ulan.
Agad akong lumabas at naligo. Ang sarap ng pakiramdam. Para bang nakalaya ka sa lahat ng pressures at worries ng buhay. Sa bawat patak ng ulan sa aking katawan ay parang Omega Pain Killer na tinatanggal ang mga failures at sakit sa buhay.
Bathing in the rain gives us also the chance to overcome our fear of getting wet, of getting sick tulad ng sinasabi sa atin ng mga matatandan, o ang madulas.
It brings us back to our younger days, and the yearning, ang pangungulila sa nakaraan, ang pagtanggap sa kasalukuyan at ang hamon sa kinabukasan.
Rain is an expression: “In the early morning rain with a dollar in my hand. With an aching in my heart and my pockets full of sand. I’m a long way from home and I miss my loved one so. In the early morning rain with no place to go.”
Rain is yearning: “I’ve been hurt so bad. Sometimes it makes me sad. Would you rain on me? I don’t understand. This was not my plan. Would you rain on me? Don’t stop the rain.”
Rain is crying: “If I wait for cloudy skies. You won’t know the rain from the tears in my eyes You’ll never know that I still love you. So though the heartaches remain. I’ll do my crying in the rain.”
Rain is moving on: “Tears may fall and clouds may gather, I should go I think I’d rather.. Wait until there’s no chance left at all. I’m just waiting for the rain to fall.”
Rain is awakening: “I’ve looked at life from both sides now. From win and lose and still somehow. It’s life’s illusions I recall. I really don’t know life at all.”
As long as I live, I will not get tired of anticipating for the rain.
