This last weekend, my husband and I had a “flashback” epic movie night. The movie? Believe it or not, it was Spaceballs! We laughed in silly ways, like when the spaceship became a ‘transformer’ that quickly flashed us back to our own kid’s Transformers that they (we?!) played with when they were little (they are now in their thirties!)
Yesterday, when taking a “time-out” to enjoy the Alaska “summer solstice week” sun, my mind wandered to the movie – especially the spaceship ‘transformer scene”.
As I was mind-wandering, I found myself watching a bald eagle, hundreds of feet above me, soaring higher and higher on warm thermals. Suddenly clouds began to form. At first, fluffy clouds came in. Then, those fluffy clouds turned to stacking, billowing clouds. The eagle became a dot as it soared and the clouds formed.
In a blink of an eye, the white clouds swiftly turned light gray and just as suddenly, turned into angry dark clouds that soon spewed bolts of literally blinding lightning. That was followed by the roar of thunderous claps of thunder, and pelting rain that turned into a down-pour, sending the dog cowering inside on ‘his’ couch. We had to talk in decibels loud enough to cause hearing loss! Talk about a ‘transformation”!
