Hope and light
This reminds me of a night a long time ago. I'm remembering because it was dark and I thought I was was lost....
I was driving to visit my brother and his wife in Baysville but it started to snow and blow and it was getting dark - I took a wrong turn and finally realized I was lost and at that time I had no cell phone. Snow was blowing and it was dark I could barely see the road then , all of a sudden I noticed massive strobe lights filled with rich, brilliant colours flashing up into the sky! I pulled over to have a better look - it was a fiery and magnificent light show, one like I had never seen before and the colours were transparent but rich and vibrant ... but could not flashing lights from a nearby city, I was in the middle of nowhere, on my way to Huntsville, what was this?
It was Aurora Borealis! Incredible, I forgot all about where I was and that I was a bit scared, as I had my 5 year old asleep in the back and the snow that was blowing had covered the road and the road signs. I rolled down my window only to hear a symphony of sound to go
along with that spectacular light spectacle . It was a series of low to mid tone whistle type chanting sounds that were synchronized with every movement of the light. I've heard about Aura Borealis having sound on the rare occasion but I was actually experiencing it! I felt like I was just given the most incredible gift, and I knew somehow I was meant to be lost because maybe I really wasn't... it was perfect.
I continued on, to stop at a gas station, purchased a map and finally made it, a few hours later, but made it to my destination.
I will always remember that night and am reminded that there is always light somewhere, even though it may seem dark, there will always be hope waiting to be found. -keep looking, be patient with yourself on the journey -and when you are open to all possibilities, you never know where and when you will find it.
