As the tornado moved in its narrow track it took down many trees. Squirrels in town will talk about this one for generations.
Our home lost power but since no siren went off (the tornado developed too quickly) we were not concerned. We went to bed early, we had no idea. Our sweet dog Rosa panted and was hyper alert all night. She is a sensitive being, and she felt this event deeply.
Rosa may not be able to read and write but she is connected to the world in a way I am not. She is part of the force of nature. I sit outside this force, in my modern cocoon. Who is more aware of the life around us? My vote goes to Rosa.
