Sometimes lightning strikes, without warning or premonition.

It streaks the sky with an energy unique and all consuming.

And it carries you away to a world you might never have known.

A wonderful world. A beautiful world that is rare and foreign but feels like home. And you can never be the same once you’ve been there and learned the secrets of lightning.

Once it becomes part of you, your spirit, your soul. And you never want to be the same.

The lightning got me and I’m never going back.

  1. I feel that way about beauty. Wonderful photo to match your post, Annie!

    Absolutely Teens – and I have to say I love that photo too. πŸ˜‰


  2. That is very true. I can relate to it a lot; and it’s true not just for lightning but sometimes for every single thing and moment in life! πŸ™‚

    Yes, quite true – quite.


  3. Hi Annie,

    What a great picture! It almost begs to have some facial features blended into the cloud and the enemy of your choice added at the hot end of the bolt.

    Hey Grit,
    Well, I have some extrasthat I didn’t use if you want me to send them along. Let me know and they’ll be in your inbox lickety split. πŸ˜‰


  4. Absolutely!

    I’ve been struck so many times over so many things, and yet each time, I still find it a surprise, fascinating and enchanting. It’s just too ‘striking’ for words. Ha ha.

    Thanks for sharing that.

    BTW, I take my coffee with 2 creams please.

    Hey D,
    Yup fascinating and enchanting – couldn’t have said it better myself. And here’s your coffee, heavy cream, yummy I take mine the same way. πŸ˜‰


  5. I’m sorry you got struck by lightning. Get well soon, I hope your hair grows back.

    Thanks dear, but since I have a lovely collection of hats, I’m not too worried about the hair. You know? πŸ˜‰


  6. Mostly we associate lightening with doing harm and as a bad thing. You have transformed it with your words and make it so wonderful and beautiful. Thanks Annie πŸ™‚

    Hey Gem!
    Well I have to tell you dear, this is a special kind of lightning and I’m just lucky it found me. Know what I mean, girlfriend? πŸ˜‰


  7. Love that photo! Lightning is so awesome. I’m one of those peeps who will just sit and watch a good lightning show for as long as it lasts. From a safe vantage point, of course.
