Today I’ve opened my window, today I’ve opened the shutters for first time and I’ve taken out the curtains. Today, for first time in the whole summer, natural light has entered my room, that melancholic blue light of the rainy days has entered my room.
I’ve stood still in front of the window, staring at those grey clouds that were covering the sky. I was nervous because in Valencia the clouds can vanish into thin air at any moment, and that was not what I wanted. I’ve stood still in front of the window, staring at those grey clouds that were covering the sky until it started raining, and with the first drop of rain a teardrop rolled down my cheek. I wasn’t sad at all, but for some minutes I couldn’t stop crying, I was so relieved.
Seeing the rain falling strongly, seeing the grey sky and the thick clouds, which the sunlight couldn’t trespass, seeing the city empty and melancholic… everything changed in front of my eyes and suddenly the city felt so beautiful.
But the storm wasn’t ending here; the strong flash of a lightning crossed the sky followed by the rumble of a thunder. Then I was sure that the day couldn’t be better, I was sure that even if the summer storm doesn’t last too long it will be worthwhile.
The sound and the smell of the rain are two of the things that I love the most, they make me feel something magical that I can’t feel any other way, they inspire my to create.
So now I ‘ll take this valuable opportunity I’ve been given, who knows when it will rain again in Valencia.
I leave here this beautiful song by Adrian Von Ziegler, perfect for the rainy days.
