So who would have thought that there is actually a word that describes the
moment when you're all safe and warm in you're room while there's a
storm raging outside. It must be one of life's ways of reminding us that we're
lucky to have a roof over our head. And of course with our varying weather
these moments are not confined to the Winter only. We often get days
like this in July when it feels like October.
So this time round I had no eureka moments for a new blog name like I
did for the previous two blogs, so I just stuck with Chrysalism. It's a name
I've been thinking about for quite a few weeks. So Chrysalism it will be.
And looking up further details of it's meaning I found one that goes into
more detail. It's by someone that goes by the online name as 'Black Summer Days.'
And it follows.....
Chrysalism: The amniotic tranquillity of being indoors during a
thunderstorm, listening to waves of rain pattering on the roof
like an argument upstairs, who's muffled words are unintelligible
but who's crackling release of built up-tension
you understand perfectly.
Plus there's more by Black Summer Days
I've also read of others describing Chrysalism as simply being safe at home
while all the wars and madness are going on in the outside world,
and that the home becomes like a bubble of calmness. Sounds nice.
