The Rainbow After The Storm


Typhoon number 18 pass through Japan this morning.

I have a bad habit of getting excited over natural phenomenons and I always feel guilty about it because people actually get hurt or even pass away. But even when I was younger in Michigan, every time there was a tornado warning, I'd get excited and run outside to watch the sky turn all green and eerie. Little pebbles would start to fly around and the air would be would of energy. It was always the most amazing feeling watching mother nature express herself.

I ended up sleeping through most of this typhoon. But when I went outside to go grocery shopping, the whole sky was lit up in bright pinks and oranges. It was so bright that not just the sky but even the air seemed to be pink. Isn't it a gorgeous way to end our three-day weekend?

Hope you all had a great long weekend, too! x

    That's exactly how I feel. I was actually looking forward to howling winds and torrents of rain, but then I saw the videos of Kyoto and ... instant guilt complex. Tokyo's typhoon was a non-event, as usual, but last night's skies! Wow!

    1. It's so difficult not to be in awe of it all when mother nature is such an extravagant showman. But I guess life is full of mixed emotions like this.

      I bet you had a fabulous view of the sunset last night! I literally ran to get a photo of the sky while it was still there :D
