The storm reminded me freedom. I am not sure people believe in freedom nowadays. It feels dated. Compulsion and social obedience is the rule of the day (existing not living!). Sometimes I feel claustrophobic living in a society of forced patterns where people for some strange reason feel safe. Nobody does anything except working. Social media and the same opinion on everything or everyone shows that people want nothing but mirrors around them. The whole world seems to use the InterNet to hide from their own emptiness. I fell in love with the thunderstorms because they made me feel free of those compulsions and patterns. As each storm was so different and so damn breathtaking, so too were my heart and the thoughts in my head!
