Sometimes you’re in the mood for a good storm. Today was definitely one of those days, it was close and sticky and everyone was a little bit twitchy. Then on my way home the skies were cracked open by thunder, lightning and a magnificent rainstorm so that I was quickly soaked but couldn’t stop smiling. I even stopped to take a picture but it didn’t capture the light or the fact that I could actually see the rain sweeping across the one patch of light, yellow white sky that was left amid the grey. Once I got home, I watched the lightning from my window and smelt the rain and the way it cleared the air.
I was going to put something else entirely here but it didn’t quite fit so I found this quite beautiful performance instead. Amusingly though, I also stumbled accross a version where it seems to have been mixed with techno…. Alternatively there’s a fabulous Vivaldi piece which is also a storm, I do love Vivaldi but he’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Mmm, tea….
