Pitter Patter

There is nothing that compares to the sound of raindrops on a metal roof. It is the music of nature... heralding peace and contentment. This is why Jamaicans are notorious for wanting to stay in when it's raining-or as we are more likely to say, "when rain falling." We also generally prefer not to be wet so that may factor some in the mix. Not to mention the sweetness of the Jamaican man who knows how to hold his woman close to him in bed for a round of morning glory. I swear that just like how Trinidad and Tobago has a baby boom 9months following carnival, Jamaica has a boom after the rainy season (which unfortunately is getting a little helter skelter due to global warming).

But rain is still a really spectacular feature of nature, complete with it's own sound, smell and aura.

The next time it rains where you are, take some time to just allow it's peace to wash over you. In the meantime, listen to this song by Jamaican folk singer, Ernie Smith, appropriately titled "Pitter Patter."
