It’s seven o’clock in the evening, and I am in my pj’s, sitting comfortably on a chaise lounge in a screened in porch at the back of my house. My hair is pulled up in a bun simply because it is hot, humid and it’s raining.
The sky is gray, and thunder is booming in the distance. The loud sound of thunder and the quick flash of lightning have often mesmerized me as a youngster. Spectacular lightning storm is lighting up the night sky now and I have front row seats. I love it!
I have a cup of steaming hot tea to my right and pouring torrential rain just inches away from my bare feet. There’s not a single animal or person in sight. There’s nothing but the sound of the rain. I take a long deep breath and think to myself; this is what it feels like to be truly relaxed.
