It is poignant that we can be in a room with a view, or walking down the street, in glorious weather, even lightly raining, and we look for something uplifting in an electronic message instead!
If the rain gets us down, and we don't want to puddle jump, emails and app alerts etc… still won't cut it.
Lovely autumnal haiku!
