I know this sounds really odd of me, but my answer to the ? ^ is yes. I know it sounds like I'm just being superstitious and insane in my beliefs, and while I admit I can be superstitious + insane at times, I swear this isn't one of those. This is something I've noticed for years now. The weather seems to reflect my mental state in a freakishly accurate way, each and every day. Notice that I said mental state as opposed to mood. That's because the weather doesn't reflect my mood the way you would typically think of. It doesn't usually rain when I'm sad and its not always windy when I'm feeling wistful. The weather seems to reflect my thoughts more than my feelings. Rain represents change, lightning indicates . . .change as well but a fierce change in my way of thinking while rain is more gentel, rain its like both building up on my new perspective and washing away my old one; How cloudy the sky is represents how cloudy my thoughts are . . . Or more likethe clouds represent my deeper thoughts . . . not surface levle conscious thoughts. Sunlight sort of represents . . .energy i guess? Crap this is really hard. I've never tried to explain this to someone in detail before. I guess light sort of represents the amount of energy my thoughts have. (when I wrote that just now and was thinking about the effect sunlight has on my thoughts and then the sun came out. Previously the sky had been a light gray, cloudy high up in the atmosphere) I guess I have to go now because my dad started yelling at me for not good reasons, but does anyone one else have this connection to the weather?
