Why do we put our hands out when it's raining...

I'm just thinking about why we normally like to put out our hands when it's raining. I always find it bizarre, and I don't know if everyone feels it but I know  I just instinctively feel like I should hold my hand out whenever I see rain.

I guess it's the nice feeling of rain in my hands, as they say water means life - as trees, plants, and crops grow. Perhaps that's why? I like hearing the sound of rain drops so maybe it's because we each just feel and know that water will mean more life in our world. One could say the same with the sun being out.

It just makes me think about all the nice sayings that people have relating to the weather and how our environment plays a big part in our thoughts and how we need elements of it to live. I'll certainly be looking at phrases such as 'It's a nice day today' in a different light - and just thinking about how we each instinctively are relating it to it meaning life in our world...

It is interesting to see how we just instinctively react to the world around us. Our subscious and human instincts really kick in, in moments that you sometimes expect and do not expect. It's a lovely feeling being human!
