après l'orage

I was unable to sleep last night, in anticipation of the imminent storm, which finally blustered in at about 4am.

Yoyo and I lay together transfixed under the corrugated plastic roof of my studio watching the heavy puce clouds transform into a clear periwinkle blue. After the rain had finished laundering the sky, I felt immediately more settled and calm and was finally able to get some sleep.



I feel refreshed and rejuvenated and a lot more content this morning, and I'm glad the blue skies have returned.

It's amazing what a good storm can do to the soul!

The rain does make things feel cleaner doesn't it? I love that phrase "Laundering the sky" - lovely x
