My Own Little Show

Last night, a thunderstorm blew through my neighborhood with a fury. The rain was coming down sideways and the thunder and lightning was fairly intense. The storm knocked out the power briefly to my home, so I turned off all the lights/electronica and just let the house be dark until the storm was finished with us.

It was about 9:20pm when the rain started to let up some to a soft pattering drizzle and I heard the first thhhhwump…… boom!! I stepped outside onto my porch in time to see a pom pom of sparkling purple in the sky. Then I heard another ssssssst sound behind me and turned to see another pom pom of glittering gold…. followed by mother nature and the flash of far off lightning and a soft roll of thunder. I have some large trees in my backyard and while I waited for the aerial displays of color to go off on either side of my house, I watched the fireflies twinkling in the wood. It was rather ethereal and quiet lovely. The blend of mother natures version of a spectacular light display and man’s creations were enough to keep me standing in the rain on my back porch until there was silence, and I was happy.


I believe you make your own reality whether good or bad. Thus, my favorite saying is, "Say what you mean and mean what you say."

Well, Sharon, if you wanna know what I think....
