If you scroll down, you would see one of my previous posts entitled A BUCKET OF RAIN which is a blog entry about me longing for a rainy weather because summer is too damn hot. But now I wanted to rant about the rain.
Here in the Philippines, June to November is the rainy season. Uhm, No. STORMY SEASON. We usually have more than a dozen storms a year leaving so manu damages. Floods everywhere, tress fell down, flying roofs, no electricity, no water and the minimum death toll is approxumately 10. Now, why would I want that?
I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes we can never be contented. If it’s hot, we want it cold and vice versa. And this isn’t only about the weather. More often than not, we long for and focus more on what we don’t have. It’s sad to know this but at the same time, it’s a struggle to be contented all the time. Right?
One thought on “Hot or Cold?”
I fled Vermont because of the endless rain and grey skies, but now that I’m living in the desert, I rejoice in those very brief monsoon rains. Rarely am I lucky enough to get an all day rain, but those would be welcome at this point!
Pleasure is very much an oscillation between yin and yang. The grass is always greener on the other side. Especially when you live in the desert and don’t have any grass!
