Good Airs

joylani 130pxThere was a dark and blustery storm this morning.  I woke up around 7am and it was still pretty dark, but I just figured it was due to the recent day light savings time change.  But then there was a gust of wind and I heard a rattle of leaves swirling on the roof top below our window: a storm.  By the time Matt and I left for class this morning it had hit hard, dropping heavy splashes of rain across the city.  We decided to take the Subte to avoid getting soaked, which was surprisingly less crowded than yesterday.  Our language school is located on the fourth floor of a multi-level building.  There is a courtyard in the middle of the classrooms.  Windowed glass doors of my classroom face this space and I watched as the patio became darker and darker during the morning session.  Loud thunder and heavy rain made the morning more interesting (grammar lessons are useful, but sadly not very exhilarating), and when we got out at 1pm it was still raining steadily.  But now the sky has poured all the tears it has and there are wide swaths of blue sky.  But I don’t know how long it will stay like that.  Some days the weather is steady here, but some days it just keeps blowing.  This can be a blustery city.  That’s just the “good airs” I guess.
