In the China series, small Rainy Day People walk in single file through an ancient land of inordinate beauty. Against a backdrop of evocative skies, the unfamiliar landscape, filled with shapes and colors they do not know, beckons them to heights of discovery they can only imagine.

Dresden is a study in delicacy and steel. Once the Jewel Box of Europe, this masterpiece of baroque and rococo has a rich and turbulent legacy of culture and art, war and destruction. There is energy in such synchrony of past and present, wonder in the timelessness of a city reborn. On stormy evenings, when painted clouds brush roofs and towers with the colors of heaven, the solitary watcher under his black umbrella could be you or me or anyone with an eye for beauty and a sensibility for love.

A castle is the closest thing on earth to eternity. Step into the shadowy corridor of an ancient turret and you’ll be transported to a world where bravery was the order of the day and the murmurs of everyday life rose in a hallelujah chorus of awe and celebration. The sheer weight of stone and beauty brought order to a savage world. The solitary watcher, silent in the rain, knows the lore and the lure. Listen for his feet on the timeworn stairs.

The Land Below is an enchanted world of shadow and light, where ancient cities cling to silent crags and magnificent leviathans circle the turquoise deeps. Freedom is here and beauty. Magic is for the taking. Take heart. Be strong. Look beyond yourself. There is so much more to the here and now than you ever imagined.

Dark and silent, watchful and waiting, Rainy Day People wander the Italian North, where ancient landscapes are strewn with poppies and sunflowers and old hill towns speak of lives that span millennia. There is a profound sense of continuity here and reaches of history and time so vast they make the present seem like an old, familiar friend newly discovered.

The ancients understood that a flood changes everything. The old is washed away; the new sweeps in faster than the mind can fathom, with a power and enchantment that can only set the world aflame. On the crest of this mighty wave of fortune, life has the prismatic clarity of the reborn, wondrously fresh and clean in the purity of unexpected dawn.

Budapest is a city of mist and memory, where imperial onion domes crown palaces and pavilions and rain falls with the rhythmic patter of a waltz. In the voice of the Danube lie the stories of thousands of years: love and laughter, triumph and loss, cruelty and pain. In the timeless beauty of a cloud-streaked dusk, the patient watcher hears them all. They are his stories and ours, mysterious, bountiful, alive, luring us again and again to this wondrous spot.

In the storm-swept dusk, Bamberg is a city out of time. The rain that falls on these ancient streets has fallen for a thousand years. The golden light that gladdens our eyes has gladdened the eyes of untold watchers. We are in the now and the never. Magic is all around us. The stories we hear in the whisper of the wind are our stories and everyone’s. The joy we share is the joy of the ages.

In a world bound by earth and sky, the glory of Ebermannstadt is in the eyes of the watcher. The rainbow hues of a snowy street. Silver glints of shadow on cold stone. The carmine riot of storm clouds racing across a swan-graced pond. There is communion in the timeless tones of church bells, echoes of comfort in cerulean hills. Beauty is powerful here, and joy. You know where you are. You know you belong. You’re back and you’re watching and you’re home.
