Month for Loki, Day 12: Lightning
I walked to the grocery store today, to pick up something for dinner.
It had begun to rain shortly before I left, so I was unusually prepared for once, and I brought my umbrella.
So there I was walking under my umbrella, listening to my iPod, and thinking about what sort of meat that I should buy for dinner…
And next thing I know, I do believe that I came extremely close to being struck by lightning.
I was listening to Marilyn Manson’s cover of ‘Personal Jesus’* on my iPod —
and right at that final chorus of Reach out and touch faith
–I saw a bright flash and I felt a brief electric shock that made my hand go numb.
I dropped my umbrella, frightened, and looked up as I heard the after-rumble.
Right then, Led Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant Song’ began to play on my iPod.
All right-y then.
Hail Loki ❤
Hail the Gods and ancestors!
*’Personal Jesus’ is a song that I have long associated with Loki.
‘Immigrant Song’ is a song about Vikings – and thus, I’ve found it an easy association with the Norse Gods.
