WHERE does the lightning strike? It is wonderful to sit here safe in my home and watch the lightning show. It is scary, too. This storm doesn’t seem to have any rain. In the Oregon desert that is something to fear. Dry weeds and mountain to mountain sagebrush. I can see where it strikes. But tonight there is very little thunder to gauge the distance.

 

Just as I wrote the above paragraph it started to rain and there was a strong enough thunder to shake the walls of the house!

As I continue writing I am finding myself pulled into a peacefulness. The sounds of the rain on the roof. The smell of ozone and alfalfa fields intoxicating. The fear of fire diminishes with the downpour.

So where does the lightning strike? Where?

 

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for Stream of Consciousness Saturday!
