Lightning in Subang.

On the flight back from Paris, I read in a newspaper that Subang is now officially the most lightning-struck area in the world.

An average of 572 lightnings strike here each year.

I am now at home in Subang, typing this, while a loud, raging thunderstorm is crashing just outside my window.

God is awesome. Once again, the Tao takes my breath away.

"A lightning flash:
between the forest trees
I have seen water."
- Shiki Masaoka

It's a lot like epiphany, isn't it?
