Every once in a while I have to remind myself that I enjoy the bad weather as much as I enjoy the good. This morning was one of those times. I know, for sure, that this is merely a state of mind heavily - if not completely - influenced by mood, or energy, and countless factors other than the weather itself. That makes me feel better about it, and the reminder apposite and worthwhile. Often, when I write here, I also have a metaphor in mind. This is one of those times.
