“The Shape of Water” is concentric circles

Raindrops on water is one of the loveliest sights I know. Always makes me happy and is something I seek out at the end of a storm, just as I also automatically look for rainbows.

Is that something I do because I’m a mom and always did it with my kids? Or did I always do it with my kids because that’s who I am anyway. Because my own parents did it with me perhaps?

Hard to tell where these circles begin and end. A raindrop can’t generate waves if the water isn’t there waiting for it in the first place. And that raindrop wouldn’t even exist without condensation of water that had evaporated from a previously existing source.

One of those chicken–egg things, I suppose, except with liquids instead of animals 😂

    I love rain whether it be a quick storm that blows through or an all-day rain, I find peace in the idea that we will have water for one more day, the flowers will grow, the streets will be clean, the gardens will continue to feed us. I’ve never liked the feel of sun on my skin beyond a minute or so. But rain!
