"Seeing" things a little differently

The calm before the storm

It’s quiet now, a sort of calmness that can make you nervous. You can feel instinctively that something is going to happen… It’s the calm before the storm.

It’s 2:00 in the afternoon, we are headed on Interstate I-65 north. My daughter, Jack and I are headed to Birmingham for tomorrows barbarian challenge. The car is packed and our “training” is completed, “it is what it is” as they say. Ready or not, here we come!

We have a four hour drive, then another hour in the morning…. I can hear something rumbling in the far distance. It will be tribes, hordes and clans of barbarians, a thousand to be exact…. Yep… It’s the calm before the storm.

Tomorrow the high is expected to be 93 degrees and factor in the humidity I think it is fair to say the heat is on!

I am ready to tackle this…. One of many challenges that make life so interesting. Jack will be our support taking pics that will prove our endeavors.

Yes, that eerie feeling of something big getting ready to happen…. I got this!

More to come so stay tuned to “the aftermath.”.
