It’s a “picture’s worth a thousand words” kind of day here. A rainy day, to be exact. An early-rainy-season afternoon, when the ground is still dry from summer, the plants and trees and humans still grateful for the sound and smell and feel of a downpour.
Depending on where you are when you read this, you might be experiencing unseasonable cold, or unseasonable heat, or unseasonable shut-inside-ness. No matter what the case, I hope this picture sends you just a bit of the breath of fresh air that comes with those first Costa Rican rains of the year.
I’m a writer in San José, Costa Rica, on a year-long quest to share daily posts on inspiring people, places and ideas from my adopted home as a kind of tonic during a rough time in the world.
