The Little Black Cloud Overhead!

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Today, as I sit in front of my computer, Sparking, I heard a familiar sound, but it was more insistant this time. I looked out the window and the sun was shining but it was raining - correction, pouring - Cats and Dogs pouring. The sky was blue, but I went to look from a different direction and high above was a small black cloud that had enough moisture collecting and was dumping over the area it was sailing by. "Thanks little guy. We have enough rain and really don't need any more."

It reminded me of how I was feeling today. Like I woke up and got going very early and was feeling sad at the same time. No known reason, just chemicals in flux, I guess. However, now I feel much better.

Have a SparklingDay!

    Interesting, and I can relate. I headed out of my house this morning, biking to Downtown Dunedin as a part of my cross training. I got on the Pinellas Trail and saw a similar dark cloud. It spritzed on me, I embraced it, and by the time I made to breakfast, I was dry. Coming back, I saw several which inspired me to increase my speed. Ah, what we have to deal with in Paradise!
I just mentioned to an SparkFriend that we all will have negative spells but to wallow in them would simply be a waste of time. When I find myself there, I look to do something positive for me. The easiest thing is to do cardio outside or strength training. It's great therapy...and it's free!

    Glad your blac cloud of emotion didnt stick around. As for the rain I am sure it could be done without.

    We need the rain and will take all the clouds and rain you don't want. I'm glad your mood has improved.

    It is always strange to see it rain on a bright sunny day. Those clouds can do some funny things and sometimes it feels like they are just hanging over our heads. Hope your dark cloud disappears soon.
