The Sounds of Rain | Josephine Livingstone, Hallie Bateman

Illustration by Hallie Bateman

"At two, the rain in Hong Kong seemed to bounce off the pavement as high as I was tall. At ten, I slept under a slanted window in an attic bedroom, watched over by rough grey London skies. The smell and the sound of rain, you’ll find, doesn’t change much. Hot rain falling on the sea is a bit different from cold rain falling on concrete, sure, but there’s a note somewhere in there that is always just the same."

"The Sounds of Rain", Josephine Livingstone, The Awl.

Going Out for a Walk | Max Beerbohm

"Whenever I was with friends in the country, I knew that at any moment, unless rain were actually falling, some man might suddenly say "Come out for a walk!" in that sharp imperative tone which he would not dream of using in any other connexion."

Going Out for a Walk, Max Beerbohm.
