When I was a kid a tornado hit our trailer park and yes, I’m completely serious. That evening still remains in my top twenty freakishly frightening moments, but also as one of my favorite.
Aside from the fear of your body being sucked from the earth and thrown into another dimension, it’s quite a surreal experience that leaves you breathless and in awe of the world.
The calm just before the storm feels eerie and somewhat exhilarating, but the deep surreal silence afterward makes you question whether you’re even still alive. In the moment nothing, but the pounding of your heart matters.
Lately, I feel like one of those people in the photos just after a natural disaster. A heap of splintered trees and twisted cars behind them as they stand in complete dismay with one hand covering their mouth. You can’t even imagine what they’re thinking or feeling.
However, I’m tired of that image.
It’s time to become the tornado.
I want to suck the air out of the room, change the color of the sky, create new paths, and listen to the pounding of hearts along the way.
We all have the power to be greater than we are now, especially when our nature is unpredictable.
Also, check out the blogs below because between the three of them I always find a good laugh or moment that helps get me through the day. Not to mention that they say really nice stuff about me and deserve whatever award they want to take from the Love Stamp page. I think I’m falling in love with them.
More awards to come!
