Rain Rain

Plus and Minus to any situation, the yin yang as the Chinese refer to it, manages confirm itself in all things. It is for mere humans to recognize it.

Case in point: Rain

One requirement for life is water. Fresh water for mammals and plants is essential, we need it. Too much water, then, we drown. Storms and floods destroy much, kill many. Some curse the very thing that we need to survive because it came in abundance.

Children sing:
Rain Rain Go Away
Come Again Some Other Day

Or this one:

It's raining
It's pouring
The old man is snoring
Went to bed
Bumped his head
Couldn't get up in the morning

Adults speak of the Rainmakers and Flood breakers…

The Weather Channel fills your head with fear and dread of storms and floods that don’t materialize, after you’ve completed your storm proofing purchases for the day. Yet, there are those victims of storms who Weathermen declare are caught unaware because no one can really predict the weather.

When the rain comes
They run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead
When the rain comes

Makes ya think, don’t it??
