Oh heck yes. I love thunderstorms.
Last week during that nice thunderstorm, I made an attempt at writing something that rhymed. Or sort of rhymed:
The Last Thunderstorm

These last days of summer
When you hear the thunder roar
The world’s an IMAX movie
From the refuge of your porch

Raindrops are the earth’s tears
But they don’t make me blue
Because the water cried down to me
Is like the sun soaked up for you

It falls….
Like everything must do ultimately
It refreshes
Enriching the barren earth with green purity

Then it just stops.
Leaves you wanting more but it
Evaporates and falls again
Better than before

Pitter-patter-pounding
The crystal beads descend
Concentric circles widen
In the puddles with no end

It turns the ground to molten mirror
And the air into perfume
I’ll miss these percussive symphonies
Wish it wouldn’t all end so soon

It’s the end of the summer thunderstorms
Distant booming fades away
Winter’s snow is not as good of a show
But I’ll be happy when come May!



Lol, I know, corny, but I had to write it. Because that is indeed my favorite part of summer (besides being off from school). Nothing beat those thunderstorms in Idaho, though. Since we were in a valley/meadow, surrounded by mountains, the thunder would just echo for like 20 seconds, booming so loudly you thought you would go deaf. And the thin, hair-line bolts of lightning illuminated the sky for beautiful moments, far too transient to ever be captured with a camera. I miss that place so much.

But it's all good, I'll be back in nature next week for two days when I go backpacking in the Catskills! Of course it's not Idaho, but I will be in a small section of Wilderness, and that's always good. I'm real psyched. Hooray!

Oh yes I forgot to write that last week I went to a sitar and tabla concert at the New Rochelle Public Library. It was classical Indian music, played by Prof. Subroto Roy Chowdhury on sitar, and Pandit Samir Chatterjee on tabla. Incredible. The music has such a beautiful and magical feeling to it, and it entranced me in such a marvelous state. I love Indian music!!

And yesterday at the Larchmont craft fair thingy I sold my clay incense burners with incense, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross for hurrican relief. People seemed surprised/impressed that I was doing that, but I dunno, it seemed like a normal thing to do because those people certainly need the money more than I do. But it was amusing, because lots of people didn't know what incense was, so I had to explain, or they thought it was too risque, or that it was like something to do with marijuana so they didn't let their kids have it. Hehe, uptight larchmont mothers, so amusing to observe.

But that really sucks that you can't burn incense or candles in dorm rooms!! I'm going to miss it! Or I'll just live off campus. Argh, not talking about college now. Actually, I really don't that much, but it seems to be the only thing that my friends talk about sometimes. No offense.

Okay, I'm out for now.
Wombaticle!

Over the summer, I went to a festival, and they had to evacuate the area during a thunderstorm, and I worried for a whole day that my friend and his dad were one of the people who got injured. I also got scared because one person died from a falling tree, and the people I knew were all the way on top of the hill. On my way home we were on the highway and the windshield wipers weren't working so much, so we could've died or gotten injured from a serious car accident. I don't really think thunderstorms are cool anymore.

Wow, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend anyone with that, I understand how that's really scary, but I just happen to have nothing but good associations with them, but that's only my opinion, so my bad. But the important thing is that you're alive and okay. Still, sorry, didn't mean to upset you by bringing back a horrible memory (I always seem to do that with people!).

no, not at all. I want you to keep your ground with how you feel but remain knowing of other angles, thats all. I seem to lack that skill, and its a skill because were mostly driven to think about things by how weve had it. Idk, it's not a orrible memory. Once I knew everyting was okay, it didnt really impact me anymore, but Idk, I likle talkiing to people about things, but I don't like to change peoples minds, and although it seems that way, its really not like that.
