When it rains, pour on the gratitude. David Lipschitz's letter to the Cape Times. Friday 27th January 2017.

It seems to me that we need to find alternative ways of thinking about our water crisis. Pool covers, well-points, boreholes, dehumidifiers, water restrictions, water tanks, etc, are all great, but are there any other ways of bringing rain?

Rain dances and prayer meetings have also been suggested and shouldn't be poo-pooed. I personally pray for rain, and when it rains I make a point of watching the rain and going outside to celebrate and sing in the rain. I even set my alarm for the early hours when rain is predicted.

We hear how important affirmations and gratitude are.

Let's not take our rain for granted and let's celebrate and enjoy it as much as possible.

Yours faithfully,
David Lipschitz
