Why do men riding bicycles carry cats or small dogs on their shoulders? Why do people run from the rain? I knew a man who never ran from the rain. He loved it. Tilted his face up and drenched himself with every raindrop. He hated days without rain. Couldn't stand them. He had a son and called him Rain. Took Rain by the hand and tried to teach the boy to let the rain fall on him. The boy hated the rain. They could never see eye to eye. The son thought the man a great fool for wanting rain.
