Rain Painted Silver


“…when she trod on the mud, the mud was beautiful; when she ran in the rain, the rain was silver…”
(C.S. Lewis, “Til We Have Faces”)

Home. A long day made quiet by aย soft, silver rain.

    • Thank you Tony! YOU are THE ONLY person I know who has read that! Psyche and Cupid~ it’s also a big favorite of mine as well. I’m so happy to meet someone else who has read it– whenever I mention it I get the craziest looks. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • I think it was Mr Lewis’s last novel, wasn’t it? I could certainly relate to Orual’s accusations against the gods. I see a lot of myself in her, mainly in the first half of the story. And, yeah, no one I know has heard of it either, and then when you try to explain what it’s about… ๐Ÿ˜›


      • Yes– it was his last- what he considered his “most mature” work ๐Ÿ™‚ It is one of my favorites as well. …and forget trying to explain what it’s about — this is me, “…ummmmm well…. you should probably read it for yourself…” ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Great shots of the feel of a rainy day. Very nice as it matches the weather here in Hong Kong that I just arrived in…not bad, as rainy days can be perfect days as well. Cheers to a great weekend.


    • Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ Rainy Hong Kong days, that is a sight I would like to see ~ silver rain falling on a glittery, glistening city. Here’s to rainy days sometimes perfect and sunny, smiling, French toast weekends~ cheers


      • Oh you would love the rainy Hong Kong days. The past two days we’ve had Cat 3 typhoon warnings up, and then today it was calm…I went out for a run and halfway through a brilliant thunderstorm drenched me. A great feeling, and definitely wished you were here for that ๐Ÿ™‚ Could definitely use some sunshine and French toast right about now ~ Cheers to a great week.


      • Running in the rain~ this has happened to me so many times in FL— a feeling I love ~ I live in lightening capital of the US – which can pose a few challenges for rainy day running! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hopefully you are safely dodging rain drops and will feel the sun smiling down into your face soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
