You should try dancing with me in the rain

It’s been pouring rain the last few days, the kind that seems to have whispers of Jazz music woven into the raindrops so you hear the rhythm as it falls from the dark sky. If you stand still enough you can feel the wind envelope you into its warm embrace so even as you become…

The window is open next to me, I have on an old Texas Wesleyan University hoodie to keep warm against the cold air that occasionally wafts in.
