Nature Posting: Hurricane

For this weeks nature posting I really wanted to write about the storm so it’s a little late (sorry):

 There is nothing like letting myself run fast and free through a storm. When the wind and rain are whipping face and the cold is stinging my skin. I feel the true power that nature has had all along but has been keeping dormant.

Maybe its all the movement, the wind is moving all around me and the rain down into my face. And I am moving into it, fighting back against the wind or letting the wind take me faster.

My heartbeat is strong and constant and so is my breath. I have beaten the cold and no longer need clothing to keep myself warm.

The warmth comes from my movement and inherent life.
