Started on the circlet for my valkyrie costume. It&#8217;s upside down (drying) in the picture. Got this far today, but now I gotta put it aside and pack for Oslo. Will finish it when I get back.

rain appreciation post

Nothing on this earth will ever compare to rainfall. Nothing will ever match up to the droplets sprinkling against your cheek, or the water soaking your clothes. Nothing will ever be like the droplets plopping against the street, or tapping against the metal and glass of the constructed world. 

Rain is the one of the most magnificent facets of this world for me, and nothing will ever compare to it.
