"When you get caught by the rain, when you realize there's no hope of reaching the car, you just surrender as the rain drenches you. You surrender as it soaks you to your core. You relish the feeling of the deep surprise, of the dim sense of seeds breaking open somewhere in the dark. You feel like dancing in the rain with the thirsty earth. Eventually you have to reach the car and dry off, but oh, the wet laughter of the meantime!"
— Anne Higgins
American poet, born 1955
