‘Real’ Time Storm Chaser
What is most exhilarating about this week’s Reel Time?
- A) This amazing image captured by Tony Porter for the Brisbane Times. Check out those electric wires, fighting tong and nail with that lightning bolt! Heaven watches from behind the safety of trees, smiling (or is that smirking) benevolently (or is that malignantly) over the proceedings.
Or does the exhilaration come from:
- B) Watching in horror, as a Twister grows before our very eyes. Stunned into immobility, the storm-chasers witness this invisible menace close up and personal, as it draws substance from the rush of existence daring to fight it back into oblivion – is anyone else getting ideas for a book here? Or,
- C) Laughable me doing a horizontal pole dance or,
- D) The technologies that make it possible to keep tabs on these brutes, so lives can be protected.
- E) All the above?
As exhilarating as all that was, meeting a real time storm chaser, Justin, was for me, the big event. To learn that there are networks of people out there spiralling into cyberspace these incredible events of nature is pure adrenaline pumping exhilaration.
To share the huge aliveness of nature, its constant impacting, revolutionary energy, a living supernatural force that can blow you from here to Kingdom Come in a lightning flash, is a pure surge of revelation. Thanks, Justin.
