Floating Clouds on a Rainy Day

Gloomy Day in Paris, Photographed by me.

The absence of sunshine always brought me down. But I learnt something very important through song-writing and poetry.

Every thing is an allegory. There is beauty in everything, If you only look. A cloudy day can take you to memories of summers in your mind. They can show you something you never noticed, an idea, a wild imagination.

Music is the key to finding the beauty on a rainy day.

Next time the cloudy days get to you, do this:

  1. Notice the atmosphere, notice the sky.
  2. Put on some jazz, because jazz will just make sense, on a gloomy day.
  3. Make yourself a hot drink.
  4. Write down your feelings.

These are the artists I listen to on a gloomy day:

  1. Billie Holiday
  2. Julie London
  3. Sigur Ros
  4. Pink Floyd
  5. Charles Aznavour

Create your own personal rituals for every kind of mood.

What are some songs that soothe your mind on a gloomy day?

Share in comments, I would love to know.

Have a warm day.

  1. For me slow country is the way to go on Gloomy Days.
    Songs about love and love lost. Tunes about pain and coping. Love it.

    (Currently have a song from Nashville on repeat: Longer by Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio. So lovely.

    1. That’s interesting I’ll check these out. I listen to songs about love and loss on gloomy days too. They just make sense don’t they? 😀
      Thanks for reading. 🙂
