I knew in my bones tonight that I needed a walk. It is not often I go for a walk (by myself that is, I love them with people) because the Type A side of me likes to run/do yoga, but tonight I knew a walk was in order. I was feeling floopy, as Phoebe from Friends would say, and with a sprained ankle and having already done a fair amount of yoga today, it was walking time.
The universe decided to reward me by opening completely with the most spectacular lightening and thunder storm. I love storms like this but we don’t get them quite as often in NZ (I only realised recently some people don’t like storms? Dangerous ones I can understand but the run of the mill type seem beautiful to me..) Luckily there was no rain, just gorgeous fork lightening and thunder. I actually considered doing some yoga sun (lightening?) salutations and a few poses because I am crazy but luckily my sanity kicked in (along with my parents reprimands if I did yoga in a storm) and I had a vision of me being struck down by a lightening bolt mid tree-pose.
I satisfied myself with taking this video but if you are not quite as enthralled with the beauty of this as I am, and don’t want to watch an entire minute and a half of lightening in Sydney/have more of a life than me ( 😉 ) I would reccomend skipping to the end because there is some great fork lightening there.
I keep trying to turn away from it and then it keeps being beautiful and sucking me back in haha.
If I hadn’t gone for a walk tonight I wouldn’t have seen this glorious display of nature’s power and been reminded of the beauty all around us.
What is something beautiful you saw today?
Do you like storms?
