Can you feel it?

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by peter-reebok, Jul 17, 2007.

  1. Don't know if I overdid the single malt last night, but when I walked outside this morning, there was a feeling of power in the air.

    Maybe - since there is a storm predicted, it is electricity in the air, etc etc,
    But it was a mighty feeling, and just felt as though I should expect something miraculous today.

    And it was the best commute too - bike felt right in every gear, holes opened up in the traffic, and I had only one red light in 20kms!



    Anyone else feel it, or am I just weird?
    BTW, location is Melbourne.

  3. Funny you should mention this Peter. I was standing in the kitchen before and I got this strange feeling...almost of dread. To make it worse there came a great rumbling from outside and the feeling of dread intensified x 100. I yelled down to the girls...panic growing with each second that passed...."Put the Goddamn wheelie bin out!"

    :p

    (We were too late) :( :LOL:

  10. :rofl: Very funny Rosie
    but yeah Peter, I get what you mean. Sometimes get it before a thunder storm. Just like animals freak out before them you can almost feel the electricity in the air.
    Maybe its a passed life thing. I feel no more alive than when Im in the hills and snow and cold. And yes I can feel the energy of the place sometimes when Im there-I feel sooo alive :dance: .Which kinda makes sense-well to me at least, coz Im decended from the McCloud clan,in the Scottish highlands,Isle of skye,Denvaygan castle,but aint immortal :(

    Some people subscibe to the theory of the land having held the memory of the events passed. I have personally experienced this at My Lai in Vietnam where 160 odd woman/children/buddhist monks were massacred by a lovely chap name Lt Kelly of the American armed forces and his men under his command.

    The place made me buckle over in pain and cry uncontrollably, once I got 20 or so foot from the trench were all these people were slaughtered as they stood. Can I explain it rationally any other way [-( no I cant but the memory of the land. Im sure if I visited Auswitz or similar then I would have the same reaction

  11. I'm the same when it comes to the ocean Movin...I'm drawn to it..always have been and always will be. It has a medicinal effect on me..calms...strengthens and makes me feel bloody alive. I put it down to the fact I'm descended from Maori's and we all know how important the ocean was/is to them. :)
