At other times i just watch the commuters while at the sidestreet enjoying the scene. Of course your pants will be wet to the knees and your shoes get soggy. That is a bit uncomfortable, but that is also an interesting experience. I also like watching the plants after a good soak. They communicate with me their joy and sense of well-being, and they send the sense of contentment. That, somehow, is how i fell too.
