Power out

August 2, 2006 § 1 Comment

For more than an hour tonight, I sat in the dark and watched lightning as I’ve never seen it before. Not flashes but a barrage, the strikes coming every two or three seconds. Machine gun lightning.

Sitting in that dark, which stilled all the sounds of the city except for rain, I realized how desperately I need to get away for a while. Most people take vacations, or at least stop working for short periods of time. I haven’t done this in over four years.

It’s starting to show, isn’t it?

    We never lost power, thankfully. I watched the whole thing standing outside. You only get to see a storm like that once a decade!

    Vacation is as necessary as work. I highly recommend it.
