A Thunderstorm Repose


Just a quick post about the unexpectedly chaotic thunderstorm here in NYC today, where I've been staying for a while. The thunder was so loud and the lightning wouldn't stop; but all the rumbling, ghostly flashes of light, and dripping rainwater served as a therapeutic trance, lulling me into a state of quietude (interspersed with plenty of photographing, of course). It was like a gentle reminder (albeit in a booming, thunderous voice) that sometimes, you need a nice break from days of constant commotion. Productivity is necessary, but respite is both necessary and sweet.
