Yeah, I'm Nuts

Michigan has been hit by storms the last few days. Big storms, we are talking hail, lightning, tornados, and lots of rain.

In fact I have been off-line for a few days, compliments of Mother Nature taking out the tower that my internet connection depends on.
So yesterday, as I arrived home in the pouring rain, my father in law calls me to let me know that a tornado touched down not too far away and that he and the kids are in the basement at his house. He suggested that I do the same.

So what did I do?

I went in the house, changed into shorts and went outside.
In about ten seconds, I was dripping wet. The rain was pelting down on me and I could see less than twenty feet through the rain. Lightning illuminated the sky electric blue, deafening rolls of thunder all around.

I just stood there, feeling the raw power of nature. Breathing in the charge in the air, feeling the warm rain strike my body, the wind pushing against me, incensed that I would dare defy the storm and not run for cover.

Actually, I danced. A solitary, insane dancer on a stage of wet grass, behind a curtain of rain, music provided by the wind and thunder, illumination compliments of not too distant lighting strikes.

Feeling the power.

I respected that storm. That was power. Bill Gates does not have power like that. Nothing man made has power like that. Nature was pulling out the stops and putting on one hell of a show. I never felt scared or threatened, just awed.

After a while, I went inside, my clothes sticking to my body, leaving a wet trail as I walked through the house, but charged, spiritually and physically by the awesome drama that I was just a part of.

Maybe someday I'll let you splash me. I don't mind getting wet except it means that those wet clothes have to come off.......

I would have loved to have had you there. It sounds like you could use some loving arms wrapped around you. I was thinking of you while I was dancing, my long distance dance partner, and how much you would have loved it too.

I would have loved to face the awesome power of that storm... Belting my face, body, my whole being......... just surrendering to the things that could happen........ Maybe. Defying Mother Nature....... "Strike Me Down"........ but, she wouldn't..... life has other plans for me. Not that I don't wish you would you'd have your arms around me....

I'm cool, my friend......... I know there are those out here, that "have my back"........... I've got yours........ I won't stand behind you in a storm, I'd stand in front and block you from the wrath........ Tale it "head on".........

Thanks man.......... for real.

Sometimes the greatest thing you can do is allow the rain to wash away the world. Glad to see catharsis is alive and well in you neck of the woods.
