I love the summer storms that bring the natural light show of lightening. The louder, brighter and nearer, the better (well, not TOO close!) There is a true power exhibited when the ground shakes and the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. When the the music of rain dances on the leaves. There is (literally) an electric excitement that occurs. Today I feel very grateful for lightning for it is during these storms I am focused, totally present and very much alive.
