"Pitter Patter Steps" (淅沥的脚步声)
"Pitter Patter Steps" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
It all revolves around the sun, when it’s high and mighty and causes water droplets to evaporate transforming into clouds... stratus, altocumulus, perhaps a nimbostratus? It’s raining rhymes all of a sudden. Pitter patter sounds on my umbrella, splash, pitter patter steps as I make my way back. Splash. You know it’s a myth creative people dislike the rain? Claude Monet painted multiple rain inspired scenes like “Belle-Ile, Rain Effect” (1886) and “Morning On The Seine In The Rain” (1898) rightfully so! When the skies burst open and water pours down from the heavens it’s a wondrous feeling. Water is life that nourishes and mends whatever it touches. As a matter of fact, in Chinese culture clouds are considered lucky because they bring the much needed rain to water the crops. It’s no coincidence that the Chinese word for cloud “yún” (云) sounds the same as the word for fortune, or yùn (运). Watching the rain feeds my innermost thoughts and the pink noise of that pitter patter is the cherry on top.
