S08 Ep41: Thunder and Rain


“I am a being of Heaven and Earth, of thunder and lightning, of rain and wind, of the galaxies.”  – Eden Ahbez

Thunder can warn of an approaching storm, or signal it’s passing, with torrential rains that give way to gentle drops falling.  This week, music inspired by thunder and lightning.
