That whole "nature" thing works out well! [May. 21st, 2014|11:20 pm]
Early this evening Ferrett and I had an errand to run that took us close to a lovely park with a nice hike by a stream. We had Shasta with us and so we stopped and had the perfect kind of hike: the air was warm but not muggy, the sun was shining, a light breeze. Nothing strenuous, just holding hands and enjoying the peace that comes with water falls.

We watched a beautiful sunset as we drove home, and once we were safely inside, there was a terrific thunderstorm with lots of rain. When it came time to take the dog out for her last widdle, I expected to be huddled under an umbrella. Instead, I was looking up at a starlit sky while all around us--literally 360 degrees--there were lightning flashes in the distance. So I called Ferrett out and we strolled around the block in the warm, slightly damp air, watching the light show that was just distance enough that we couldn't hear thunder. That's what I call a perfect evening.

That does sound like a very nice evening. There was a beautiful sky here one time, but it was while it was pouring rain. I didn't have any type of camera to capture the sky, either. I only have it in my memory - but beautiful purple with yellow hexagons of lightning.

Sounds magical! I recall years ago sitting on our side porch and watching an approaching storm; it was like being at a fireworks show!! Once the rain began, we reluctantly went inside and watched the rest through the window.

As kids, we watched many a storm pass over the large lake where we had a cottage. I've always loved storms (so long as I am safe).

I can think of no two people who deserve more of 'that whole nature thing' and the beauty and peace that comes with it. I'm sure it helped soothe your frayed spirits, even just a little bit.
