Rain has a variety of expressions like light rain, heavy rain, sun showers, etc. Sometimes, rain is revered as a blessing from heaven. Other times, it is disliked as a natural disaster.
Rain is just rain, but its interpretation depends on the context.
I believe rain is beautiful, but some people feel blue when it’s raining. So, it is my desire to express how rain is beautiful and how nature has a message for us.
One day, I was at home watching heavy rain fall. At that moment, I remembered another rainy day and my mind recalled the view, the surroundings, my feelings and so on. I felt like I was communicating with my past self. Then, I realized that rain is a media which is deeply linked to people’s memories. Creating a rain-filled world, my “rainy world,” may help open the door to people’s pasts.
