To truly take notice of the calm before the storm while it is occurring, one would have to possess the knowledge of the upcoming storm prior to the storm's onset. Otherwise, it might not seem out of the ordinary, or extraordinary.
This particular storm, the Surreal Brainstorm, has been brewing for more than three decades and I have, at very sporadic times, felt the calmness. I have felt it around me, sometimes even swallowing me. But I have yet to feel the calmness wash through me. Perhaps this is because the storm itself resides within me, or at the very least, manifests itself from within me.
Therefore, with each blog entry, I hope to create a channel within myself whereby the calmness may enter and exit freely. So get out your ponchos and buckle up, people. You're about to become a stormchaser. Of course, you are free to seek shelter from the storm by remaining inside the safety of your own head. If you choose the latter, all you must do is simply close this "window".
