This rain seems endless, though it looks as though today might be beautiful. We are a week or two away from the blissful arrival of berry season. This rain is good, it’s drenching everything with droplets of emerald. I ran through Stanley Park – was it yesterday morning? – with the Parkside Runners. It was raining and misting and puddle-riddled. It was also lush and fresh and so, so green! And while we were running I thought of the pots of strawberry blossoms that I saw at the market last weekend. It won’t be long now, and that’s kind of thrilling.
