A Calm Storm

The blog of Sholeh Samadani Munion


Last night the storm took over my sleep, and I only wish I could have been awake to enjoy it. Instead I drifted in and out of sleep, imagining it was an earthquake (the thunder was so powerful it shook my bed…at least I think it did).

An hour ago the skies were blue with white clouds, and now again the rain is drenching the trees outside my window into a dark dark green color. And now again the sun is struggling behind the white/gray fluff to shine through my window.

But sometimes I think that thunderstorms are better appreciated when asleep. It makes dreams so much more interesting.

(the view out of my office window this morning)
O ye beloved of God! When the winds blow severely, rains fall fiercely, the lightning flashes, the thunder roars, the bolt descends and storms of trial become severe, grieve not; for after this storm, verily, the divine spring will arrive, the hills and fields will become verdant, the expanses of grain will joyfully wave, the earth will become covered with blossoms, the trees will be clothed with green garments and adorned with blossoms and fruits.

  1. I totally agree, Sho, I like them much more when I’m asleep. It really enriches the whole sleep experience and also helps me to not be scared you know?

  2. Yay for storms! Best possible weather = summer afternoon thunderstorms back home.

    And props on not hating peppers, cause they’re delicious and good for you.

  3. This reminds me of that amazing pic of the rainbow of your (BEAUTIFUL). There is something about the holy land that is just sooo amazing.
