Cracking Through

It’s been over a decade since a truly dramatic thunder and lightening storm hit San Francisco. It was the flashes and the wind that woke me at 3:30 am. There was some thunder, but it wasn’t so loud. Over the next couple of hours I watched bolts shooting across the sky. But I filmed it so poorly, setting my tripod in the worst spot. Ultimately the best part was the sounds I made in the background. So much excited gasping. Jumping up from my creeky chair, typing frantically on Twitter. It’s nice to be delighted by my own delight. A storm can be so healing for me. Something cracked through the stuck, anxious, depressed state of mind I went to sleep with. The storm also matched the biblical level drama that is 2020. Who knows what will happen next…
