Rainy days bring about the most amazing shimmer. In that shimmer lies the most amazing play of colors. The colors get distorted, stretched and embellished. Moods are set by rainy days. For some reason I think Milwaukee looks better rained on. Everything seems so much richer and prettier. Maybe it is because I know Milwaukee better than any other place rainy.
These rainy days I slow down when I drive. I take city streets and take in all the distortions and colors that shimmer. I have my car windows open a bit and take in the smell of the freshly fallen rain and suddenly feel more alive and yet somehow chilled out. Now since have been running on high-octane as of late this is not a bad thing at all.
