The dam rain was coming down again.
The little girl knew that there was sunshine up there somewhere. She had been in an airplane and watched as they descended from the sun into the clouds to a rainy day in Seattle.
She wanted to turn the world upsidedown and watch the rain go out the other side of the clouds making holes so the sunshine could peek into her world.
Her life had been in the rain country for so many years that she missed the sun dearly. That dam gravity held her hostage. In a world without gravity she could even float up into the clouds and go into the pure sunshine with ease.
GRAVITY was heavy. As the little girl slogged to school in her rubber boots she stepped into a puddle and laughed as the reflection exploded in rays of sunlight. She smashed her boots even harder into the puddles and delighted in the shower of drops that swirled around her.
For just a moment she was free of that annoying gravity.
