699. Turbulence and beauty

Turbulence and beauty.jpg

Last week I took some vacation days and off we went to a cabin on a lake. I made a reasonable effort at staying unplugged, but logging into Facebook on that Thursday brought news of the Philando Castile shooting the night before in the Twin Cities, where I live. Instant inner turbulence. The weather had already been turbulent. Earlier in the week, we had spent about 30 minutes in the basement riding out the peak of a severe storm. As my photograph shows, more turbulent weather was on the way, but how beautiful this moment.
