“We been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin’ rain … and big ol’ fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.”
- Forrest Gump
We all recognize these famous lines from the movie Forrest Gump when our hero and his fellow solders are walking the countryside of Vietnam – It’s this whole other country. Isn’t it great how Forrest has the ability to see rain not as generic but with so many subtle variations? Instead of just rain, Forrest sees the moisture’s texture, size, and direction.
Do you regularly look for the variety, texture and direction of everyday life, or are you only experiencing living in the most obvious and humdrum dimensions?
