A Good Storm

A storm came this week. It was a torrent of wind, air, and rain. The wind battered my windows. The thunder shook my roof. I took the time to listen until I could hear the storm in separate parts. 

The wind sought a new place; its goal, to balanced its temperature. The rain followed its common pattern:  ground to sky then back to ground. The lighting was simple. It sought to ground itself.

It made me think of the days where I try to do everything at once. My phone calls, my emails, my word count goals, it can be overwhelming. 

To find calm amidst the chaos, breathe and listen to the distinct sounds. Not just any sound, the sounds that matter and the sounds that move you forward. 

A good storm is one of the best opportunities to listen.

P.S. I’m entering the endgame of video editing and entering the rough cut phase. Time to let a trusted group scrutinize the work and get it polished-up for the world. “Let’s GO!” I yell out loud. The day is yours. Go and do something amazing.
