storm shot

There was a very dramatic storm last night. As I sat in the classroom in University College, U of T, I watched the sky blacken, thunder, lightning, lashing rain. By the time the class was over – and a spectacular class it was too, such depth and honesty, made me proud – the sky was pink and red and blue and gold. Very beautiful. Somehow, looking back, UC looked like Disneyworld.
