The sound of the rain peppering the windows and paths outside the house in the dead of night still does it for me.
Could I sleep last night, could I hell. Typical really. I'd slept like a log the previous night so it was coming, I guess.
Thankfully mother nature's lullaby was playing so I made a point of ensuring as many windows were open as possible.
It's incredible how your mind jumps from anxious to pensive at the sound of a million raindrops.
A potentially disastrous start to the day therefore has been transformed in to a surprisingly productive one. The coffee is going down nicely and I have a sharpened pencil and sketchpad ready to scribble down some design ideas as they flow. (I'm currently working on a web application's UI design)
