Oct 20

Today I went for a walk.

There is a wall on campus that is a fountain, and I heard it talking to me. I sat down on the bench for twenty minutes and let it tell me its secrets.

I let it take me away from here. It took me out to a place where burbling water can say meaningful things. It took me to a place where people don't think that's crazy. The fountains whispering gave me ideas, told me where to go, let me relax. My mind was clear of anything but the sound of water. That doesn't happen often.

I sat on the bench and shut my eyes and listened.

I haven't felt that beautiful in a long time.

I miss the rain.
