Storm and SUN

Two nights of storm has keep me sleepless. The houses here are standing on stilts and it feels like they are about to take off at any time. Thoughts of space travel and foreign planets mix with the sound of the rain hitting the walls and windows. The pine trees are bending violently at the top. In the morning everything is calm. Later on the sun came out - I could see the sun for the first time since I got here, and I stared at it even though I know you're not supposed to: how wonderful! I filled myself with it for the few minutes it lasted, took a picture of my shadow as proof. Later on it snowed, so now everything is white and bright. What a difference a day makes.
