When raindrops first start falling, you CAN hear the individual raindrops hitting the ground, loud and staggered.
At this point, we are in CONTROL of our senses and perception.
But as more and more raindrops begin to fall, the force becomes overwhelming, the sound uniformed, and we can no longer hear the effects of the individual raindrops hitting the pavement.
…We have lost the fight to hear the RHYTHM OF THE RAIN.
Sadly, we are now at the WILL of the RAIN.
