Ride the Lightning

Last night in rural Louisiana, there was a super-charged thunderstorm that swept through these backroads.

There were so many flashes of lightning at the peak of this thunderstorm, the sky appeared as a strobe-lit dance floor in the sky.

Flash! Boom!
Flash! Boom!

With a rare event like this, it creates a feeling of smallness and fragility within the human experience–how irrelevant or mortal our physical beings are in relation to the electrified, natural world.

And the booming thunder that follow are like exclamation marks that rattle windows and shake walls.

Flash! Boom! A dance of light and sound, and the awe of sublime power.
