I miss the clear brollies that you get in Japan. They make rainy days a little brighter somehow. I like how they are so cheap and so readily available. I like how they are shared and move from one person to the next because people leave them in places like outside a train station for another person to use. I like watching the rain bounce, dribble and shimmer on my brolly. I could do that for hours.
Why do most Londoners insist on black or dark coloured brollies? They cast such a dark gloominess over us.
