some feel the rain

straight rain crow painting by nakedpastor david hayward

Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet. (Bob Marley)

When I heard this beautiful little quote the other day it inspired me to paint another crow in the rain. This one is atop an old birch tree and the rain is falling straight down on him. Actually the crow is a huge spiritual symbol in my life. My love for them came first.

It also caused me to become reflective and wonder how well I handle discomfort.

    Wonderful, David. I love the quote, too. My good friend bought the original of your crow against the wind.

    Interesting. I did not know that quote — it is fantastic.

    Oddly enough, two days ago it was raining hard with everyone running to their cars while leaving work. I decided to walk slowly, feel the rain and smile at the clouds while getting wet — it was joyful.

    Ah, I wish I would shake up my habits more often!
    Thanx for the quote.
