I dont know about you, but I love listening to the sound of rain when Im creating. This probably sounds weird. But this probably stems from my childhood growing up in the country of New Zealand, where it rained for days straight, with nothing better to do, but be mesmerised by the sound of the rain tapping on the tin roof, which got my imagination/daydreaming going, which lead to wonderful creations. I find myself drawn to this feeling as an adult when I’m creating also. I find it really relaxing and also rather meditative, calming … also it allows me to not think i’d rather be outside enjoying the sunshine, at the beach etc. But safe, warm and comfy inside making, crafting, creating or designing.
A friend of mine just recently sent me this website link to “rainymood.com“, which got me onto this topic, now I can choose when its raining and when its not.. (In terms of my creative process – I’m thinking my creating days are going to be even more powerful than before”) I will let you know how I go!
In the mean time if your like me and enjoy the sound of rain tapping against your window while you work have a look and listen to rainymood.com (I really think they are onto something here), a really simple, yet fab idea!
You can also suggest tunes to play with the rain also! Another lovely idea! Im really into Bon Iver at the moment and think it works perfectly. Have a listen!
Enjoy the rain tapping against your window (computer monitor) while you create!
