Part 1

She, Myra, tried to sleep that night ... She really tried hard, but her thoughts kept raging, over and over again, filling in anger and helplessness at the same time ... she wanted to scream but she could not ... and just then as though nature too decided to compete with her thoughts .. there was this breeze at first .... and then there was the winds, real crazy and harsh ... it was getting cold as the winds blew stronger; there were light drizzles and then coupled up with heavy showers ....

As she rose from her bed .. she no longer felt anything but just the feel of nature that night... Yes, Myra's encounter with nature that night ..

It was like as though she had tried to fight the wind by trying to close her windows and doors to be by herself again to be back into her own storm .. but nature threw her back as though it tried to tell her, don't try to shut me girl ... this is how I feel tonight so let me be... and then as though she was weakened by nature .. drained by her own thoughts, she decided to let go ... and simply felt the winds ... the breeze .. the drizzles .. and the showers .. as though forgetting the storm she herself was in... a while ago ... and just let herself face the strong willed nature while she calmed and eventually waited for the nature to calm down ..

Part 2

During the eerie mood swings of nature that night .. the mirror that she so wanted to make space for since her renovation ... gave way and was shattered to pieces... she ran to it .. only to discover so many shattered images of herself ... as a daughter ... as a sister .. as a mother ... as a teacher .. as a colleague ... but in all those different faces .. she could not find her true self .. who she really was .. being just herself ...

What was the storm all about ... was it the most wanted pause .. just to make her realise who she actually was .. or make her realise who she actually is before being any other role ... did the storm help her find herself ???? Probably it did and taught her to let go at times and allow destiny to take its own path while Myra realised she had to simply follow her path before she is sure to decide her deviation.
