This morning it was raining, but Boofie (our dog) and I went walking anyhow, after all I’m from the Netherlands. In the hills, we met Leila, a beautiful female dog. Boofie liked her immediately, and started playing. We walked together for some time. Although it was raining, it felt like the sun was shining, because everybody was happy. It is all a matter of focus, I thought. Children splashing on the street puddles, don’t focus on the rain. The simply have fun, because they are their own sun (that rhymes). They shine, even when it rains.
On the way to the car I jumped in a puddle, splashing the water in all directions. Boofie looked surprised at me. I understand, I was surprised myself. I was a little boy for a while.
