Here’s a good quote:
Life is pain, princess. Those who say it isn’t are selling something.
That quote is from “The Princess Bride”. It’s a movie. You should see it. And in case you’re eight years old, the movie is a bit scary.
Oh, and my subject. Thunderstorms. They are just so beautiful…but we don’t get them often where I live, and then mostly at night. It feels so spiritual for me. The last time one occurred, I was watching it out of an upstairs window, the window open a crack. There was a blinding flash just outside the window, yet seconds later, we heard the rumble. It was incredibly loud, rolling across the sky like a trash can.
My, my, my, what a nice simile. Perhaps I should end my post with a poem?
A hard rain.
A flash of pure light white,
and the living rumble of
the voice of the world,
a force too powerful
and magnificent for words.
What do you think? Let me know. Until next week…
