In the immortal words of Freddie Mercury and Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ – “Thunderbolt and lightning, Very, very frightening me”. On Tuesday evening, those of us who live in the northern half of Fuerteventura were treated to a display of the power and spectacular beauty of lightning and thunder.



As for me, I’m a girl from the Canadian prairies. Electrical storms were part of the very fabric of my childhood and so they hold no fear for me as an adult. And now that the advent of surge protectors has meant that I no longer have to switch off the TV and the computer when a storm is approaching, I can ignore nature’s display and get on with life. But of course I’ve always been a city girl. Life on Tamaragua is about as countrified as I’ve ever known. So perhaps my perspective is out of kilter. Would I still feel invincible out on a lonely country road or on the top of a hill during a storm? Perhaps this week’s storm is a reminder that I need to step out of my comfort zone and take some time to think about my place in this fearsome, awesome, amazing world that is home to us all.

Until next time,

Revd Judie
