The calm.

The calm after the storm is one of my favourite times.

Life is still.

It does not move.

It is preparing for more, waiting for another fall to hit.

But it does not come...

...and after a while life begins to move and come alive.

Creeping out from the shadows and into the light, to rebuild once more.

Praying for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan today.

    Love the post, as well as the pictures. :)
