Embrace the Storm. In the summer of 2018 there were some amazing thunderstorms that rolled through northern Minnesota. The clouds took on rich deep colors and crazy formations. Often there was lightning that filled the sky, especially during the storms that happened at night.
At the same time, I was going through my own ‘storm’ of life. Deep brooding moods, difficult choices, rolling thunder of arguments. Many would have turned and walked away, away from the storm. Somewhere, somehow, I could see a glimmer of light beyond the towering clouds; I chose to embrace the storm and move forward towards that faint glimmer. It certainly wasn’t easy, but I did find sunlight and warmth on the other side.
This particular storm in this photo had lasted for a few hours. I was able to race out to an empty dirt road and catch the storm as it moved on. I had a vision in my head of this storm and dirt road, that symbolized everything that was happening in my life, and the vision worked out. The storm still had a show to put on for my photo.

Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing.
