This isn’t a metaphor. It’s about storms here in Lyme Regis, and how the humbling weather has made us all sit up and take notice of nature at work. I’m fortunate that I haven’t been adversely affected by the storms. It’s rather an inspiring sight though, if you are able to observe. My photographer friend Johan braved the extremes this week to take these.

This weather has meant dormant story ideas have started to bubble up again alongside the boiling sea.
I’ve also been thinking about Sebastian Junger’s book The Perfect Storm, which I read a long time ago. Click on the image for details; it’s a thoroughly absorbing read.
