After the rain…

The sun sets on another day…

There were photos to take. I considered the drone, but decided on cameras, and as we took photos I took hundreds, trying to catch the lightning in the sky. The air changed, the sunset evident but subdued by the thick dark clouds, and as we watched the rain slowly roll towards shore it was time to go. We go to separate cars stowing cameras just in time. Rain played havoc with the sky and smashed down followed by a barrage of hail. As the park cleared and others escaped the pounding onslaught we left.

You know, there is not much more awesome than a storm, and not much more fun, irritating, beautiful, and well, not so pretty. A storm can be everything amazing, and a series of unfortunate moments. After the storm, however, the air is clean, the sky pure, and the days and sunsets striking and beautiful.

It is much the same with all of us. The storms are in our lives from time to time. Turmoil can overcome us and fill our days with strife. We can be pounded with pelting regrets or ideas, only to find wave after wave or frustration follow. In the end, when the storm is done, it is as in nature. A clear view of the future may unfold, all we have to do is work hard with the present, and make each day the best it can be, in spite of all the issues that come at us.

So as the sun sets on another day, the storm is not an enemy, it cleanses the world. Focus on staying afloat, and doing the best you can, then when the storm is over, enjoy the clean air and find happiness for a while, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, snuggle up, and love life…
