I’m not quite sure when I fell in love with rain. Wellington-boot trips to the boulangerie, jumping into every puddle we saw. Walks through a forest we didn’t know, getting lost and drenched, with an old wooden basket filled with mushrooms we’d picked as our only refuge. Hours spent by a lighthouse, unsure whether the mist that covered our faces came from the ocean or the clouds. Long drives on the motorway to the music of raindrops and thunder and windscreen wipers.

On afternoons at the farm eating brioche and drinking never-ending cups of tea, we’d milk cows and collect eggs like treasures hidden in hay. The milk got boiled until pasteurised; the eggs were cracked and mixed with flour and yeast.

On rainy days, nothing will stop me from wandering into the wild. Hair tangled by branches, cheeks blushed from the cold wind and my sweater soaked by raining trees, I step back into my house with the restless soul of an adventurer, only to find the one-of-a-kind comfort that comes with storms. A comfort that smells of earth and moss, and makes kettles whistle and blankets wrap around you ever so tightly.

And like a merry-go-round, a rainy day will always feel the same, yet always be unique.
