There may be a typhoon heading towards the Tokyo Kanto area, but the hydrangeas could care less. They are content just being their blooming selfs. They have no knowledge of the torrential rain that could come. All that they know is that it is time for all of their tightly closed buds to open up and soak up the rainfall.
Sometimes I wish I could be a simple celled life form. No worries to cloud my thought process. I would only have my instincts and DNA to tell me what to do.
These are just fanciful wishes. I am glad that I am capable of higher thought, even if that higher thoughts are murky. It is better to be conscious of our own actions and determine the course that is best for ourselves rather than have our lives decided for us.
Enjoy the rain at least watching it from the comfort of your home or you can go out and prance with the raindrops. The choice is for each of us to make.
