head vs. heart

Its been raining a lot lately in hcmc. I know that it is rainy season, but it seems to be much more than it was last year. At times, I do enjoy the rain... the sound and sight of millions of tiny droplets hitting the pavement surface, reflecting the streetlight overhead in a rippling pattern. Seeing people play soccer outside my window as lighting flashes in the background.

But other times, it just makes me kind of sad. The city becomes this dark, damp, cold place, heavy with disappointment as the places to go out and cure the boredom becomes more and more limited unless you want to be drenching wet by the time you get there.

Besides watching movies in, I've been reading a lot lately and that has helped. Its been a long time since I've read a novel and not some techie programming book. Character development is always interesting. What makes one become the person they are? Their enviroment, their goals, their morals, or their heart ?

When in conflict
Which does one follow?
A match among equals

Hey Tuyet,
It's been raining more in Taiwan as well - but at least it's helped to cool things down.

So what does the rain do for your running schedule - on hold or do you come home drenching wet?

On hold, sigh... its quite annoying that I can't run outside.
