Harvest Moon and Heat Lightning
Tonight I sit on the stairs, watching the harvest moon rise dark red into the night sky and growing waves of lightning swelling and approaching. I have in my hands no less than a miracle I luckily bartered for the day before, a wireless PDA, and am absorbing right now the enormity of how awesome it is to be able to be outside, with a device smaller than a wallet, and instantaneously be able to create and publish literature. What we now take as commonplace would have been magic just one lifetime ago. I hear thunder approaching and know now the lightning is not harmless as first imagined.
