  1. I could not agree more…well mayhaps a mug of coffee in place of the tea would suit me better! Yet again, the Wit & Wisdom of your printed words without art leaves a space that my mind fills in with a song and this time with some thoughts as well. Strange indeed, but then again I have been accused of worse things! “Rainy Day People” from the mid-70’s by one of my favorite singer-songwriters, Gordon Lightfoot. I could sing the entire song, but fortunately for you there is no provision in the comment section to do so. I have been a “Pluviophile” since childhood, though the delightful word which rolls off the tongue came much later in life. A pluviophile is a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days. Four years of Latin has had its benefits (beyond those necessary for nursing school many decades ago) in understanding the origin of many words; such as the Latin words : pluvial – rain and phile – a person or thing. A rainy day is the forecast for Monday here in my little corner of the country, but you enjoy your rainy today! Thank-you!!

    • I LOVE GORDON LIGHTFOOT! And coffee. On a temporary hiatus from coffee. To be returned to soon! Thank you for the new word. I feel like it added a wonderful layer to the kind of days I love. πŸ™‚
