The Storm

It is not light that we need, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake.
~ Frederick Douglass

Lying on my back, naked, pointy nipples in clear view and the light coming from the window behind me.
In light I bask…

“We need the storm, the whirlwind, and the earthquake.”

Life is full of storms, whirlwinds and earthquakes and we need all of them to be able to change, to grow, to learn more about ourselves. Life can’t be only light and gentle showers, because then life will be without growth. We will always stay the same, if we never challenge ourselves, or are challenged.

  1. Beautiful sensual image, I like the ambiguity over whether the storm has passed or is approaching. I can relate a lot to what you say here, great quote x
