Oh Mister Weatherman.

Posted in the midst of Unraveled Thoughts by Tinay on May 26, 2010

This morning’s short bout of downpour reminded me of one striking thing—that summer’s end is nearing.  It’s not like I’m totally hating it, and it’s not like I’m totally loving it either. I’ve loved rain my whole life, but this one was different.

I was fortunate enough that as the city got more drenched by the minute, I was outdoors to witness it.  As I was expecting another round of scorching sun and massive heat on my way out, the rain fell instead. And it struck like a reminder; like an annoying little Post-it that pops up unnoticed. In a few days, summer will start to wrap itself up, moments will start to become more cherished, and things, well, they will begin to be more fruitful, more productive, more sensible.  In a few days, we will HOPEFULLY begin to complain less of the hot weather and begin to equip ourselves with our trusty rain gear.

But is that really all what the rain came by for? I think not. Not yet.  Maybe this morning’s rain came as an early wake-up call telling us that before we know it, things will HAVE to change. That whether we like it or not, certain moments will have to be put on hold to give way for fresher things and newer circumstances. Whether they are of more importance or of lesser importance, it wouldn’t matter.  What’s essential is that we face the coming season prepared. The next few days could be our “transition phase” from the lazy and fun-fillled days of summer to the arriving days of serious businesses.  Maybe it’s time to keep those summery dresses and bring out some dark-hued wardrobe for fall.  Maybe it’s time to cut down long hours of sleep to realistic ones for school. Maybe it’s time to show up to that appointment that you’ve been avoiding throughout summer. Maybe it’s time to begin try fitting your old school uniform to see if they’re still wearable enough right before school hits back. HAHA. I don’t know at all.

I’m usually not a huge fan of drastic changes. But drastic transitions? Maybe. And I’m sure to start preparing for it—whatever it takes.

Laughs. Loves. And Rainy Day Transitions.
