The sun did rise this morning. It has been a while since it last peered over these hills and my home. As I hurried to the stone chamber that had become my routine every Sunday morning, I couldn’t resist breaking strides to pause and bask in the glory of a new day. The birds seemed unable to contain their merriment as their twittering burst through the silence of my prayers. All around, people were clambering about trying desperately to make good use of the few hours of sunshine.
The day has now ended and the electricity has again been relinquished. The storm has returned, a swift thief plundering this sleeping town.
