A moment of pure clarity

While driving to work the other day in the rain, I had a moment of pure clarity. Actually it triggered a memory from the past that it was almost like reliving the moment again. While watching the rain roll down my car window, I remembered a similar moment from my childhood. The difference is I lived the moment through the eyes of the child that I was. Getting back to that moment, I remember my dad driving us home from school when it started raining outside our station wagon. As I watched the rain drops hit the windshield, I remember seeing so clearly each drop hit the window and start rolling down in a steady stream until the wipers erased their path. It's like the universe stopped at a juxtaposition between my past and present. Reliving that moment was like being that happy child again. It put a smile on my face which kept me in a good mood for the rest of the day!
