Petrichor...

in powerhousecreatives •  last month


I cannot speak for anybody else, but for me, the smell of the wet earth after rain is something that holds an almost spiritual quality. It is a sensory experience that literally transports me onto a completely different ”level”… I get completely consumed by the “richness” of it and carried away on an internal journey! It started to rain here about an hour ago and I have just been sitting here, staring at it and absorbing it. I was also very grateful to hear that it has started to rain out my dads way too as there have been the most insane run away fires raging through there today and already so many people have been evacuated in all the surrounding areas.

Although on the one side of the coin it can cause really catastrophic disaster, on the flip side and in the same breath – can offer a quiet and gentle reprieve. Nature is so magnificently powerful and deserves our utmost respect.

I don't know about South Africa, but here in the US we have a large chunk of scrubland/desert mostly centered around west Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and parts of California... often referred to as "sagebrush country." In summer — when afternoon temperatures often rise to 35-45 degrees C — it is also "monsoon season" which means extreme afternoon thunderstorms and downpours.

The scent of rain hitting hot parched land, mixing with the perfume of many species of sage and other desert herbs can truly be a "spiritual experience."

I share with you that the smell of wet earth after rain is something spiritual and pleasurable. I love it and enjoy it very much. Nature surprises us even with its aromas. Greetings @jaynie.

It eventually started raining here after 9. Not much on this side of the mountain and already dry this morning. I hope it has made a difference where the fire is.
