“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.” - Langston Hughes
After a spell of hot weather we have had some welcome coolness and rain today. As I write this I can hear the blessed rain falling outside and I can almost hear the garden breathing a sigh of relief. Today was a nice quiet day with some shopping, a trip to the library and then a quiet afternoon before going out to dinner.
We went to the Dalmatino Restaurant in Port Melbourne (http://www.dalmatino.com.au/), which is a Croatian eatery on Bay St, right in the centre of the prime retail strip. The food was fine and the service good, although the range of tastes on offer not particularly “chic” or “sophisticated” as is claimed on the website. Nevertheless the company is what makes a good dinner for me and the food is of secondary importance.
Seeing the rain is falling, how about some rainy Chopin for Song Saturday? Here is the “Raindrop” Prélude in D Flat.
I have been blogging daily on this platform for several years now. It is surprising that I have persisted as the world is changing and "microblogging" is now the norm. I blog to amuse myself, make comment on current affairs, externalise some of my creativity, keep notes on things that interest me, learn something new and to surprise myself with things that I discover about this wonderful, and sometimes crazy, world we live in.
I sometimes get the impression that I am on a soapbox delivering a monologue, so your comments are welcome.
