how i learned to like the rain

before i came to Western Norway
for the first time in 1995,
my girlfriend told me
there would be lots of rain.
"i like rain", i said.

well, that was maybe not quite true.

ironically the slides from this trip
were a couple of years later damaged
by a flood in my cellar flat.

recently i rediscovered the slides
with all the artifacts the water had left on them.

i'm still not sure if i like the rain.
