Electric Night

Lightning illuminated the clouds frequently last night -- flashes revealing detail then flickering out to leave deeper darkness -- but no sound of thunder came. Silent lightning fascinates me. It reminds me of the northern lights, and I could watch it for hours. Yet with all the aerial activity, only a few brief sprinkles of rain fell, releasing that intense scent which arrives only with the beginning of a storm and is soon washed away. With the failure of the rain to continue, the scent lingered a long time. After a while, the clouds began to break and a few stars appeared. Now, the remaining clouds collect the rays of the unrisen sun and flush mauve and pink. It will probably be a nice day.

All yesterday I though it was Tuesday, and didn't realize it was Wednesday until I turned on the television for a while. It's so easy to lose track of time when the activities of each day are much the same. I would know what day it was if I looked at those headings on my friends page, but I never notice them. And speaking of friends pages, and days, Thursday is usually the busiest day of the week on my friends page, though I have no idea why. All I know is that when I wake up this afternoon, there will probably be a goatload of new posts waiting to be read. I'd better get to sleep so I'll be well rested when I deal with them.
